Iceland will play Croatia in Reykjavík on Friday in one of two games which will determine which team will secure a spot at the 2014 World Cup in Brazil.

“Going to represent Iceland in a World Cup in Brazil would have to be as big a feeling as winning the two league titles at Chelsea – and I don’t say that lightly,” Eiður, who plays for Club Brugge now, said. “It has always been a distant dream – it has never gone away, however unlikely. Any boy who watches the World Cup dreams about playing in it one day. I have been realistic about it in recent years and accepted that maybe it would never happen. When I was in my prime, I was probably just about in that list, of leading players that would never play at a World Cup.”
