Many supporters of the Icelandic national football team were disappointed when they woke up this morning to find that tickets to the playoff in the World Cup qualifiers against Croatia on November 15 at Laugardalsvöllur stadium in Reykjavík had sold out during the night.

The tickets had been put on sale at 4 am and had sold out by 7:30 am. People had assumed that tickets would go on sale later today, mbl.is reports.
The second game will be played in Zagreb four days later. The winner of those two games will proceed to the World Cup in Brazil next year.
