Iceland with five debutants in the national team was better for all 90 minutes. First 25 minutes the team of Faroe Islands was able to emulate with Iceland when they had several chances to score. Goalkeeper Adalsteinsson first capitulated 30 seconds before break when Jónas Gudni Sævarsson headed the ball into the net completely forgotten by Faroese defence. Iceland doubled they lead in second half when Benjamínsen touched Gudmundsson´s pass to into his own net. And 7 minutes later the comfortable indoor win in Kopavogur was sealed by Tryggvi Gudmundsson himself.
Renewed Iceland’s squad with score 3 – 0 over Faroe Islands has plans to make good results in the next World Cup qualification and looks up for better than 89th position in actual FIFA ranking. The next friendly match of Iceland is on programme on Wednesday, 26th March in Slovakia.
