Heimir Hallgrimsson
#1
Iceland head coach Heimir Hallgrimsson has resigned from his post.

Hallgrimsson spent seven years in charge of the national team and guided them to this summer's World Cup in Russia, where they became the smallest nation ever to compete in the tournament.

Their Group D campaign started well as they came from behind to draw 1-1 with Argentina, with goalkeeper Hannes Halldorsson saving a penalty from Lionel Messi.

But defeats to Nigeria and Croatia meant they finished bottom of the group and Hallgrimsson has now decided it is time to move on to a new challenge.

Shame, deserves a lot of credit, small nation with passionate fans who prove good organization of a team goes a long way

Will be interesting to see where they go from here. Can't see them dropping back to being minnows but can they sustain the overachieving we have seen from them. I suspect they will drop into the bunch of countries like Scotland, Ireland, Norway etc, and be a team that makes the occasional tournament.
