Head coach of Iceland hallgrímsson published a list of 24 players who will prepare for the qualifying match of the 2018 world Cup with the team in Kosovo (24 March, Albanian shkodër) and the friendly match against Ireland (on March 28 in Dublin).

It includes: the goalkeeper Hannes Thor Halldorsson (Randers, Denmark), Ogmundur Kristinsson (“Hammarby” in Sweden), Ingvar Jonsson (“Sandefjord”, Norway),

defence Birkir MAWR Saevarsson (“Hammarby” in Sweden), Ragnar Sigurdsson (Fulham, England), Sverrir Ingi Ingason (Granada, Spain), Kari Adamson (‘Omonia, Cyprus), Ari Freyr Skulason, (Lokeren, Belgium), Herder Bjorgvin Magnusson (“Bristol city”, England), Holmar EDN Eyolfson (“Maccabi”, X, Israel), Vidar Ari Jonsson (“Brann”, Norway),

Midfielders Aron Einar Gunnarsson (Cardiff city FC, Wales), Emil Hallfredsson (Udinese, Italy) Hilfe tour Sigurdsson (Swansea, Wales), Elias Mar Ómarsson (Gothenburg, Sweden), Aron Sigurdarson (tromsø, Norway), Rurik Gislason (nürnberg, Germany), Olafur Ingi Skulason (“Karabukspor”, Turkey), Yngwie Adnor Traustason (rapid, Austria),

forwards Jone Dadi Bödvarsson (“Wolverhampton”, England), Bjorn Bergmann Sigurdarson, Omar Magnus Karlsson (both Molde”, Norway), Vidar EDN Kjartansson (Maccabi T-A, Israel), Kjartan Finnbogason (“Horsens”, Denmark).

I was not in the request forwards Cabana of Sigthorsson and Alfred Finnbogason, as well as the Midfielders Birkir of Bhadrasana and Johan Berg Gudmundsson who were the main players of the team to Euro-2016. They are all missing due to injuries.

Icelanders hope that it will not affect the attacking power of the team if finally fired Vidar EDN Kjartansson, which was not on the Euro – hitherto he’s in the team did not Shine, but after a while after moving in late August (just before the game Ukraine – Iceland, and it was from that time not out on the field Sigthórsson) from the Swedish “Malmo” in “Maccabi” from tel Aviv. Israeli League Kjartansson scored 15 goals in 24 games.

Icelanders will gather in Reykjavik on Monday.
