Iceland become smallest country ever to reach a world cup finals

Iceland have secured qualification for the 2018 World Cup in Russia after defeating Kosovo 2-0 on Monday.

A small country of some about 335,000 people, Iceland have now set a new record by becoming the smallest country to ever reach a World Cup finals.

Gylfi Sigurdsson and Johann Berg Gudmundsson scored to hand the European side the 2-0 victory and also secure qualification for the showpiece event which will take place in Russia next year.

The team managed to record 7 wins, 1 draw and just 2 defeats, which left them 2 points top of their group ahead of Croatia to make the list of the UEFA teams that would feature in the 2018 World Cup.

Iceland have now beat the initial record set by Trinidad & Tobago who reached the world cup with a population of just 1.3 million in 2006
