The President of Island Gudni Johansson has commented the performance of the national team of Island at Euro-2016. Island national team has entered the 1/4 final and lost to France with the score 2:5.
"Was sure that everything will be ok. I know the potential of our players and know their spirit. Island was playing with the heart, wasn't afraid of anything but respects all.
Of course we continue to develop our football, that has become the game that connects all. Yes, to play with France in 1/4 final of Euro at the main stadium of the country-this is amazing. But we have made only first steps and we will continue to improve game conditions.
How would we prize our players? They have done the best they could for themselves having created historical event that is appreciated by all. They have made all citizens of Island love them-and I think that is the main reward"
