World Cup debutants and the smallest country ever to get into the global football fiesta, Iceland is thrilled at having to face Argentina, one of the biggest football playing country in the world in its first ever World Cup outing.
Iceland, a country of a mere 334,000 people, has been drawn against Argentina, Nigeria and Croatia in Russia next summer.
Midfielder, Olafur Skulason, though, insists that he and his team-mates “love the challenge” they have been presented with, having already shocked the world at Euro 2016,
“I could see the newspapers in other countries talking about how unlucky we are to get that kind of group but that is exactly what we want.”
“We want those big games. We want to play against Argentina. What an amazing team to play against in the first game ever for Iceland in the World Cup!
“To play against Lionel Messi and the Argentine team in Moscow, just a fantastic experience!”
