RE: Fifa World Cup 2018 Countdown: 23 Days to Go | Population

Iceland is just amazing. Lets suppose that of the 337K habitants 50% are male. So that leaves a little bit less than 170K possible footballers for the National team. But most of them would be too old or just too young to play for the World Cup Team. 21,5K of those are registered as a football player!
So how crazy is that!


You're completely right! I haven't even considered that part of the statistics. So yes: that just incredible! I'm sure that they will gain even more supporters and there will be an overwhelming sympathy for Iceland after this World Cup.

Just like they had during the European Cup!
