When it comes to smashing odds, Iceland are possibly league leaders, as proved in France two years ago. Can they do the same this year in Russia? I guess we’ll have to wait and see, as who’d be brave enough to rule them out? After all, they’ve got the Viking thunder clap! A bond between fans and players that tops off every Icelandic victory.
That said, you can get Iceland at odds of 200 – 1 at the moment but is that enough to entice you to put some money on these rank outsiders?It would be an unbelievable stroke of fortune if they were to pull off the ultimate footballing challenge and lift the World Cup in Russia. Though, everyone likes to dream but would any betting man honestly back them to lift the World Cup this year?
We kinda think not…That said, we love the thought of Iceland reaching the finals in Russia and then going on to score a winner passed Germany, Spain or Brazil or whoever else manages to make to the ultimate final.
