Heimir Hallgrimsson reckons Iceland’s Euro 2016 Squad Players are already Legend whoever was a part of the Icelandic Euro 2016 squad has gained the status of a legend already and would not be forgotten by any Icelander ever.
Iceland had had the services of two coaches in Euro out of which one was Hallgrimsson and the other was Lars Lagerback.
But, Lagerback, post the tournament, took up an advisory role offered by his home association, which is Sweden, leaving Hallgrimsson to take over as the head coach in the Icelandic set up.
According to Hallgrimsson, <a href=”http://www.manutdbrunei.com”>soccer is not going to remain only a game in his nation</a> from here on, but, it is going to get much bigger than that.
Speaking after landing on the home soil, Hallgrimsson said, “The Icelanders would be talking about these boys forever like the Englishmen talk about their heroes of 1966. It’s huge. It has increased our stature as a nation.”
“The welcome we had is hard to describe. I would say, rather than asking me, you should see the pictures because they show everything. I mean there are memories which are always fresh in your head and it’s going to be of those memories for me; that’s for certain.”
“We are going to conduct a review of Euro shortly as it is important to discuss about the negatives also so that we can work on the negatives and get stronger as we move ahead and turn our attention towards earning the qualification to the next big competition.”
“We do not have to tinker with this group as nobody is retiring at least for a couple of years. It also pleased me that the youngsters, in spite of not getting to be involved that much in action in France, developed just by experiencing the atmosphere of the competition.”
