Forget Ronaldo's Nonsense And Listen To The Incredible Joy Of Icelandic Commentator

A quick reminder that following Portugal's 1-1 draw with Iceland last night, Cristiano Ronaldo said this:

I thought they'd won the Euros the way they celebrated at the end, it was unbelievable.

When they don't try to play and just defend, defend, defend this in my opinion shows a small mentality and are not going to do anything in the competition.

In truth, there's absolutely no reason to bring that up again here but we're petty, petty individuals and when someone makes that much of an arse of themselves in such a high profile moment, they deserve an entire continent's scorn.

Just in case it hasn't been made clear already, 8% of Iceland's entire 323,000 population travelled to St-Etienne for last night's game. In terms of underdog stories, they make Ireland look like footballing powerhouses. It's genuinely incredible what they've managed to achieve over the past couple of years and that came to a head last night when they played their first major tournament game and managed to take a point off a Portugal side whom many would have fancied to walk the group.


On the balance of play, there's no way Iceland deserved a draw but that's football and when you're defenders are too slow to pick up a man at the back post on a cross that took an eternity to be delivered into the box, you really don't deserve to have a whinge about Iceland's mentality.

So, enough about Ronaldo and on to some Icelandic delirium. It's a language that is entirely unintelligible to the rest of the world but it really doesn't matter what he's saying because, unless Ireland manage to actually win the tournament, this may well be the most excited commentator you're likely to hear this summer.



If that's what a 'small mentality' gets you then sign us up.
