Iceland midfielder Gylfi Sigurdsson has expressed his pride at reaching the quarter-finals of Euro 2016, adding that the future is bright for the nation.
The Swansea City lynchpin told BBC Sport: "We're very proud. It's been a fantastic tournament, something special for a small team like us, we probably achieved something no one expected us to.
"It gives the kids back home hope that something like this is possible, and hopefully we'll be back in another finals.
"Ten or 15 players are a really good age, and we're already looking forward to the World Cup starting. Hopefully the future will be bright for Iceland."
The Nordic nation's road to the 2018 World Cup begins with an away fixture in Ukraine on September 5.
