Every Strákarnir okkar match shown in the USA is within reach with our Iceland national team TV schedule.
Iceland were largely a footnote in world soccer history until very recently. The first match ever played by the nation was in 1930 against the Faroe Islands. But at the time, neither country was recognized by FIFA. It wasn’t until 1946 that the first official game was played.
When it comes to major tournaments, Iceland did not qualify until the second decade of the 21st century.
In 2016, Iceland made it to Euros for the first time. Remarkably, the first-timers made it all the way to the quarterfinals. In the round of 16, they knocked off England, before losing to hosts France in the next game. Iceland’s fans popularized the “Viking Clap” chant during the tournament.
In 2018, Iceland became the smallest nation by population to ever qualify for a World Cup. In Russia, they drew with Argentina to start the group but failed to defeat either Nigeria or Croatia, failing to make the knockout stage.
The small nation did win the much smaller-stakes Baltic Cup in 2022, and the Greenland Cup in 1980 and 1984.
