Flag: The modern version of the flag was adopted in 1915 and features a blue background with a white cross and another red cross within the white cross. Got that?

Population: 348,580

Nickname: Strakarnir okkar. It translates as "Our Boys". Nice.

Manager: Heimir Hallgrimsson took sole charge of the team after Euro 2016, having been joint manager with Lars Lagerbeck.

Captain: Cardiff City’s workhorse midfielder Aron Gunnarsson.

Star Man: Everton’s Gylfi Sigurdsson is the man that everything goes through in the Iceland set-up. A master of the dead ball, he’s a constant threat from set-pieces.

Rising star: Twenty-year- old PSV Eindhoven winger Albert Gudmundsson has three goals in three caps, although that was a hat-trick against Indonesia. He’s also the great-grandson of Albert Gudmundsson, Iceland’s first professional footballer, who played for Arsenal and AC Milan.
