Iceland coach Heimir Hallgrimsson resigns after World Cup debut

Coach Heimir Hallgrimsson has quit as Iceland Manager after seven years with the team, the Football Association of Iceland said yesterday.

 


The Icelandic Football Association says Heimir Hallgrimsson has decided to leave at his own request, ending seven years in the role.

 

Heimir was the co-coach with Lars Lagerback of Sweden at the European Championship in 2016, when Iceland reached the quarterfinals after beating England.

 

After Lagerback’s departure, Hallgrimsson took charge of the team and they became the smallest country by population to qualify for the World Cup. They lost two of their group matches but held Argentina to a 1-1 draw.
