Kolbeinn Finnsson's loan spell ends with last-minute victory

Midfielder's two-month stay in Iceland finishes on Sunday

1 July 2019

Hákon Ingi Jónsson scored a 90th winner to make it a winning end to life in Iceland for Kolbeinn Finnsson at Fylkir.

The midfielder made his eighth league start, and 11th appearance in total, for the Fylkismenn as they welcomed KA to the Fylkisvöllur on Sunday evening. The hosts started well and took an eighth minute lead through Valdimar Þór Ingimundarson. However, KA turned the game around thanks to a Hallgrímur Mar Steingrímsson brace either side of the break. 

Ingimundarson then levelled things with 11 minutes to go before Jónsson popped up with the dramatic late winner. The three points moved Fylkir above their opponents and up to fifth in the Pepsi Max deild karla.

Kolbeinn's two-month spell has seen him make seven starts in the Icelandic top division, plus a further two substitute appearances. Sunday's 90 minutes was the 19-year-old's eighth straight full game in all competitions. The Iceland international netted his first professional goal last month against FH Hafnarfjördur and also has three league assists to his name during his time in Reykjavík. He also played two games as Fylkir reaches the Quarter-Final of the Icelandic Cup.
