Kraj islandske bajke

The end of Iceland’s dream

Island je poražen rezultatom 5:2 od strane selekcije Francuske. Uprkos činjenici da se poraz novih evropskih miljenika očekivao, većina ljubitelja fudbala je danas razočarana. Ipak, ekipa Larsa Lagerbaka koja je postala pravi fenomen u proteklih mesec dana, podignute glave je napustila stadion, prethodno pozdravljajući se sa svojim navijačima uz karakterističan aplauz.

Despite their incredible shows of strength in the Euro, Iceland did not make it into the semis. Somewhat expectedly, Europe’s new favorites have been defeated by 2:5. France has managed to score fairly easily against the Vikings who have played their biggest international match against one of the top new contenders for the European crown.

Iako su u prvom poluvremenu primili čak četiri gola, Islanđani se nisu predavali, te su u 55. i 84. minutu pali i poslednji golovi za Island na ovom šampionatu. Bilo je šansi za još. Večeras je poslednju reprezentativnu utakmicu odigrao Gudjonsen, ujedno najveću u islandskoj fudbalskoj istoriji.

Golove za Francusku postigli su Žiru, Pogba, Paje i Grizman.

Despite the four conceded goals in the first half, the players of Lars Lägerback did not back down, scoring two goals from Kolbeinn Sigthorsson in the 55′ and Birkir Bjarnason in the 84′, showing that there is truly no surrender for the Vikings.

After the final whistle, the team was greeted by their fans, and the now world famous applause. France on the other hand advances ahead to meet Germany.
