Kolbeinn Finnsson makes full international debut for Iceland

Brentford B winger starts as Iceland draw with Estonia in Qatar

16 January 2019

Kolbeinn Finnsson made his first start for the senior Iceland national team on Tuesday as they completed their camp in Qatar with a 0-0 draw against Estonia.

It was a game of few chances at the Jassim Bin Hamad Stadium, the better of which went the way of Kolbeinn and his teammates. Hilmar Árni Halldórsson missed the target with only the keeper to beat in the first-half while Aaron Elís Throndarson headed wide after the interval. 

The 19-year-old, who made his debut on Friday during Iceland's 2-2 draw with Sweden, played the full 90 minutes to earn his second cap. Kolbeinn also has two caps at Under-21 level and 32 caps at Under-16, Under-17, and Under-19 level, where he has scored five goals.
