Iceland Became the Smallest Nation Ever to Progress to a World Cup
Iceland became the smallest nation ever to progress to a World Cup after beating Kosovo to win their qualifying group for Russia 2018, reported BBC.
The Euro 2016 quarter-finalists, who knocked out England in the last 16, have a population of about 335,000.
They are the only country to qualify for a World Cup with a population of fewer than one million.
Everton's Gylfi Sigurdsson and Burnley's Johann Gudmundsson got the goals on Monday evening.
Sigurdsson settled the nerves with a neat finish just before half-time and then turned provider for Gudmundsson to ensure victory with a close-range strike.
Iceland have won seven of their 10 Group I games in World Cup qualifying.
