This likeable national team
and real revelation of these 2016 European Championships, exits the tournament
following its defeat to France. It does so, but only after having touched
everyone’s hearts, thanks to the pride of its people, the often exciting
goal-filled matches and its peculiar dance, lead by captain Gunnarsson.
The fairy tale that this team
has brought to Europe and the world during these last few weeks will go down in
The final snapshot is the
image that has accompanied us ever since the team made its first appearance,
with Aron Gunnarsson leading the rhythmic clapping of the geyser-sound, with
the celebrating Blues also dominating the scene. A loud, impassioned chant,
symbolic of the volcanoes of the island of ice, that were never silenced, just
as the more than ten thousand fans, who made up the sea of blue that had
travelled to France, weren’t.
Erreà is enormously proud and
would like to thank KSI for the incredibly emotional moments with which the
fans and lovers of this sport have been rewarded, as well as for the example of
bravery and pride that made Iceland and its people the most beautiful part of
these European Championships.
