Fréttablaðið, June 28th
Tuesday's edition of Icelandic daily Fréttablaðið features the national soccer team celebrating their historic win over England in the European Championship: "Iceland 2 - 1 England, where will this end?" Monday night's victory sends Iceland to the quarterfinals, where they'll face host nation France.
The Icelandic victory against one of the iconic football teams continues the Cinderalla Story for the tiny nation appearing for the first time in a major international tournament. Their players include a part-time filmmaker and itinerant farmers. The country's population is just a bit over 300,000 people and some say that almost 10% of the nation is currently in France following the team.
The quarterfinals are now set for later this week: Portugal-Poland, Wales-Belgium, Germany-Italy and Iceland-France. The finals are scheduled for July 10th in Paris.
