From Russia with love… Brief stories from the World Cup

Iceland coach Heimir Hallgrimsson has issued an urgent plea for his fellow countrymen to turn out for their date with Nigeria in Volgograd on Friday. Icelanders were vastly outnumbered by Argentinians in their famous 1-1 draw with Lionel Messi and company in Moscow’s Spartak Stadium on Saturday. “Strangely we had difficulties in buying tickets. It was sold out for Iceland,” he said at the post-match press conference. “I can’t see where all the Argentinians bought their tickets because we could have sold much more in Iceland. We’ll have to discover (how to get) more for our next games.”
