Drawing England ‘could be fun’, says Iceland’s Sigthorsson


NANTES, France: Iceland striker Kolbeinn Sigthorsson is hoping his nation find themselves in the same group as England when the draw for Euro 2016 is made in Paris on Saturday (Sunday in Manila). The North Atlantic island nation of just 330,000 people caused a sensation by making it to a major tournament finals for the first time when they finished second in their qualifying group ahead of Turkey and the Netherlands. Under the management duo of former Sweden coach Lars Lagerback and Heimir Hallgrimsson, Iceland stunned Europe by defeating the Dutch home and away and beating Turkey 3-0 in Reykjavik. That performance came after they almost qualified for the 2014 World Cup, only losing out in a play-off against Croatia.
