Iceland joint-boss Heimir Hallgrimsson has compared his giant-killing side to Premier League champions Leicester following their much-talked about humiliating victory recorded over England.
Hallgrimsson and Lars Lagerback’s men shocked the football world with their 2-1 win over the Three Lions in Nice to advance to a Euro 2016 quarterfinal clash with hosts France.
Still hoping they can pull more surprises, Hallgrimsson, quoted by uefa.com, said on Wednesday: “I really would like things to end like they did with Leicester.
“They played to their strengths and we are trying to do the same. I think there is the same kind of spirit in both teams, we are willing to work together.”
Iceland — a country with a population of just over 330,000 — have never previously qualified for a major tournament.
Recalled that Leicester enjoyed a fairy tale run last season; which eventually culminated in them winning the English top-flight title; a year after they barely escaped relegation.
Iceland will be playing hosts France in the quarter finals and for some, just anything can happen
