Of the 25 players called up against Kosovo on Tuesday (10/10/2017) early morning GMT, none of the local league players.

For a long time, coach Heimir Hallgrímsson did not call up players from the domestic league.

The last time was Mexico’s counter game, February 8, 2017, when he included seven players from the local league in his squad.

Why is that? The league’s duration may be able to answer.

Urvalsdeild aka the first caste of the League of Iceland only lasted very short, ie from May to September.

Understandably, the football competition can not be held because the winter in Iceland is so extreme.

With a very short duration of competition, players are also believed to have difficulty maintaining the conditions and abilities.

In fact, coach Heimir Hallgrímsson had stated that the football coach in Iceland is just a part-time job.

So, if you want serious in football, Icelanders also choose to migrate like ancestors, the Vikings.

They are also present in major European leagues.

There is Eidur Gudjohnsen who could strengthen Barcelona, ​​Gylfi Sigurdsson the whiz free-kick Premier League, and Alfred Finnbogason in the German League.
