 Iceland played a friendly match with Ghana at Laugardalsvöllur stadium in Reykjavik last night, their last match before heading to the FIFA World Cup in Russia.  The team will meet Argentina on June 16th in Moscow. 

"Iceland missed the chance to go to the World Cup with a much-needed victory after Ghana came from two goals behind to earn a 2-2 draw on Thursday.

Heimir Hallgrimsson's men – who had lost their previous three friendlies - made a strong start in Reykjavik, Kari Arnason and Alfred Finnbogason scoring to earn a 2-0 first-half lead for the hosts," reports Goal.com

The Icelandic team leaves for Russia tomorrow.
