LIVESTREAM ICELAND: Northumberland Vikings @ Reykjavik Einherjar, March 26th, 20:00 CET (8pm CET, 3pm ET)

Football finally returns to Iceland after a three-year hiatus as the country’s only football team the Reykjavik Einherjar will host the Northumberland Vikings of England.

The Einherjar have a strong history of international play defeating the Mallorca Voltors (Spain) in 2017 and playing the Kuopio Steelers (Finland) and Uppsala 86ers in years past. This year the Einherjar will be quarterbacked by veteran player-coach Stan Bedwell. Bedwell, a 37-year-old European Hall of Famer fills in under center for Icelandic quarterback Bergþór Phillip Pálsson who is out with an injury.

The Einherjar’s new quarterback has spent the last few weeks in Reykjavik coaching the team along with assistants Alex Malchow and Adrian Lungu. Some players to watch on the Einherjar offense to watch out for are speedy receiver Tomas Klobeibson and Sure handed pass-catcher Viðar Önundarson  Jon Reynisson. The offensive line will be led by veterans Bjarki Gunnborsson and Heidar ingimarsson. Running back Sigurður Guarino is another top weapon that Reykavik is sure to work in.

Defensively, the Einherjar feature Nick Woods a former Junior college defensive back from California. Edge defender Ulfar Jonsson is a long-armed defender who will be playing both ways for the Einherjar.  At 6’5″, defender Odinn Baldursson aims to disrupt some plays as the 17-year-old is one of the team’s promising young players.

The visiting Northumberland Vikings are coached by Brice Stevenson. Back in 2019, the Vikings made the postseason at England’s second-highest level of play. Offensively, they are led by receiver Jack Mulholland and longtime offensive lineman Howard Snaith.

Defensively, former Allegheny College Gator (NCAA D3) Gus Semanchik and Great Britain national team defender josh penny are eager to give the English team an international win.

The country’s lone football team is thrilled to be back in action after a far too long hiatus. The Einherjar family aim to get the win in front of a large crowd in Reykjavik.
