Cheers broke out in the Icelandic locker room after the national men’s team beat The Netherlands 2-0 in the 2016 Euro Qualifiers in Reykjavík on Monday, as seen in this video clip, which is part of a documentary-in-the-making by media presenter Sölvi Tryggvason.
“Since last summer I’ve been working on a documentary about the national team in football and we will follow them during the 2016 Euro Qualifiers. The journey is just beginning but the footage we shot on Monday was unique. Here is a tiny example,” Sölvi wrote on his Facebook page, where he posted the video clip.
Icelanders were thrilled to win against the much-higher-ranked Dutch team. The victory marked their third win in a row, which has never happened before in preparation for a major tournament in Iceland’s football history.
