Gylfi Sigurdsson: Iceland and Tottenham midfielder delighted with his internatio

Iceland's 1-1 draw with Norway was enough to secure second spot in their group and they now go into the play-offs with the hope of securing their first- ever World Cup finals place.

Iceland, though, are unseeded and face a tough clash as they are likely to face Portugal, Greece, Sweden or Croatia.

But Sigurdsson believes Lagerback can take them further.

"He has been fantastic since he joined the team," Sigurdsson stated.

"He has brought experience from earlier qualifying campaigns and finals with Sweden and Nigeria."

And Lagerback hailed his Iceland squad after they made it to the play-offs.

"To qualify for the play-offs is of course a big achievement for all countries." he said.

"But this is truly something special. We were definitely the underdogs.

"When you are in the play-offs, everything can happen and with the team we have got, we can always win over two matches.

"Everything is possible, we can climb over volcanoes with these lads."

I

think all those names linked to United exits make sense. Kagawa has never really looked like hitting the form he had at Dortmund and Fellaini is radioactive after last season (even though I think he's been unfairly singled out for criticism). Nani and Anderson have had more than their fair share of chances so they are done, and Hernandez deserves better than warming a bench.

e'll be off to Spurs (or better) in January and I don't blame him. Looking forward to re-signing Grant Holt as his replacement though.
