Gudmundur Benediktsson, the Icelandic commentator turned internet sensation is back! Made famous for his joyous commentary of Iceland’s last minute goal against Austria to ensure their progression into the Round of 16 of the Euros, Benediktsson has followed it up again with another hilarious commentary of Iceland’s victory over England this morning.
Iceland defeated the Three Lions 2 – 1; overcoming an early penalty conversion from Wayne Rooney to rebound just two minutes later through Sigurdsson, before Sigthórsson closed out the first 20 minutes with a second.
The win places Iceland in the Quarter-Finals of the European Championships for the first time ever in their history. However, it will be no easy task, they’ll be up against tournament hosts France.
England coach Roy Hodgson has also announced he’s calling it quits, resigning as England manager after the disappointing performance.
