2018 World Cup most beloved team - Iceland.
The overnight sensation became famous after the stunning performance against Argentina last week .
Did you know The Icelandic National Team lineup is made up with many players that have professions other than soccer player?.
Coach - heimir hallgrimsson, is a well known Dentist.
Goalie - Will Thor halldorsson, was a filmmaker and music video producer.
Midfielder - Jóhann Berg Guðmundsson was a boardgame designer.
Defender - Birkir Mar saevarsson worked at a salt-packing factory!.
In addition, if you pay attention to the roster, you might be curious as to why all the player's last name ends with '-son'?
Icelandic people don't have family names, so their last name is made with with their parents' first name, then add -son or -dóttir to the end.
For example, If Dad's name is Jon, his son's last name will be Johnsson (John's son), and daughter's last name will be Jonssdóttir (Jon's daughter)
Iceland is no doubt the most popular team in this 2018 World Cup football game as the favorite underdog.
A country with such small population of only 330 thousand could have such a talented line-up to go against soccer giants like Argentina.
Icelandic people also love to rave about being a super neutural country, they make no enemies and the only war they had was the Cod War with England. Since no one got hurt so it won't even count.
What a funny bunch ! It's so hard not to like Iceland!.
