Icelandic President Invites You to Join Team Iceland

President of Iceland Guðni Th. Jóhannesson and First Lady Eliza Reid invite the world to join Team Iceland in the 2018 FIFA World Cup. RÚV reported first.

“Win or lose, there is always the excitement of being part of something big, even when you are small,” says Guðni in the video invitation. “Everyone is welcome no matter what you’re a fan of, what you believe in, or where you live, there is a place for you on our team,” Eliza adds.

Iceland is by far the smallest nation to ever qualify for the World Cup, a feat it achieved for the first time last October.
