I’m proud, this jersey contains some incredible moments and many of my fondest memories. But we are in a time of generational change, and we’ve had so many great goalkeepers that it’s the right time for me to step down and leave them in charge. So this is my last game with the national team tonight, thank you all.
A joint statement from the Icelandic National Olympic and Sports Association, Islenskur Toppfotbolti, and the Icelandic Football Association called for Icelandic soccer to be given space to continue the work it has done in recent weeks and respond to the issues raised.
The plan calls for the election of a new interim board and the creation of a working group to establish and review the necessary working procedures to ensure a proper response to reports of sensitive matters. The working group will work with a communications consultant on sports and youth issues.
According to the statement, the revised working procedures will be implemented in all relevant bodies of the Icelandic National Olympic and Sports Federation to prepare the entire federation to deal with such issues professionally. They noted that while Icelandic soccer’s reputation is tarnished, it also has the strength, ability, opportunities, and strong membership to improve and meet the challenges together.
