Video: Iceland national team trash dressing room with food-fight after famous victory

Gylfi Sigurdsson's goal for Iceland was enough for the nation to go within two points of qualifying for France 2016.

If you think that the seemingly imminent qualification of Wales for the European Championships in France next summer is a story, they are not alone in changing the history of a footballing nation. Iceland are also on the brink.

Inspired by talisman and Swansea City midfielder Gylfi Sigurdsson the nation are now on the brink of qualification themselves after a stunning 1-0 win over The Netherlands last night.

They won the game courtesy of a Sigurdsson penalty in the Amsterdam ArenA and are now within touching distance of France.

So how do you celebrate such a magnificent victory? With a massive foodfight of course.

Iceland made an absolute mess off the away changing room, clearly overcome with euphoria as they embark on sending Iceland to their first ever major international tournament.

Charlton Athletic midfielder Johann Gudmundsson posted this video on his official Twitter account last night.

The Charlton man is not alone in terms of British interest in the Iceland squad. There is also the Swansea player Sigurdsson, as well as Iceland’s captain Aron Gunnarsson of Cardiff City.

Iceland need just one more win, or The Netherlands to drop any more points to qualify, and face Latvia and Kazakhstan at home among their final three fixtures.
