The South American giants were unable to surmount the Nordic resistance
A meme about the Iceland football team that was made during their surprise quarterfinal-run at Euro 2016 has become relevant again, after they reprised the gumption and tenacity that made them popular during the ongoing Russia World Cup against the powerful Argentina.
The meme provides a humorous breakdown of the tiny population of Iceland, detailing how the men of the football team are chosen. As a nation, Iceland only just about enough people to populate a few blocks in Mirpur, and moreover, because of their climate, are only able to play football half of the year. This makes their recent stand against the Messi-Higuain-Di Maria-equipped runner-up of the last World Cup even more astonishing.
The only thing of note that has changed about the meme is that now they even have an Icelandic coach in Heimir Hallgrímsson.
