Football Found 25 Kilometers North of Goal

KR Reykjavík, the Icelandic champions in football, lost 2-0 in Akureyri on Thursday night against Þór from Akureyri, who, prior to the game, were ranked at the bottom in the Icelandic premier football league.

KR forward Kjartan Henry Finnbogason had a chance to put the Reykjavík team closer when he got a penalty in the closing stage of the match but his shot was so high over the goal that Þór player Jóhann Helgi Hannesson found the football floating near the island of Hrísey, 25 km (15 miles) north of the capital of the North, Akureyri, where he was fishing on Thursday night, according to one of his tweets, reports.

KR Reykjavík will play Glasgow Celtic in Reykjavík in the qualifying round of the Champions League later this month.
