Kveðja frá Lars Lagerbäck


Good Morning Iceland and KSI.

I woke up this morning, 10/10 2017, with a smile on my face. Iceland in WC 2018!! 

So first of all I would like to congratulate Iceland, all involved in football and all my friends and colleagues in Iceland.

 I have of course followed your campaign for WC 2018 and my respect for you is just still growing. Especially the attitude the players show in every game. As someone said: “With the right attitude you can always win”.

First of all I would like to congratulate all my former colleagues and friends in KSI. I know how hard you have worked for this as you did during my time in Iceland.

But most of all your fantastic National Team.
All the players who have been involved. Besides your football skills you have something extra. I am thinking about your mental strength and team spirit. You all really deserved going to Russia. You have a big part in my heart and I will follow you as long as I live.

Then the team behind the team.  If the players are good you all are something extra. I don´t think people understand what you mean for the players and the performance. Without your leadership and skills Iceland would never qualified for Russia. Besides all that you are among my best friends.

Finally the Boss. I am especially glad for you Heimir. After five years together you are one of my best friends and colleagues. You are both a high class football coach and in my opinion even more important you have a fantastic personality. The way you have guided the team together with the rest of the staff to Russia is absolutely high class work. To keep the high standard after the results in 2016 is a challenge and you did that. Well done old chap!


Best regards
Lars Lagerbäck
