Iceland will play at WCh 2019 in Munich without all-time TOP scorer Gudjon Valur Sigurdsson. The 40-years old left wing will miss the upcoming event due injury which will be a serious blow for the team led by Gudmundur Gudmundsson, who came back to the bench after great success with the Danish national team – winning the Olympic gold in Rio 2016.
Iceland will play against Croatia in Group B opener.
