The Iceland dream continues.

16 months after making the Euro 2016 quarterfinals, Iceland made history Monday with its first World Cup qualification, becoming the smallest nation in history to qualify. The country, with a population of around 330,000, won its group over the likes of Croatia, Ukraine and Turkey. The population is comparable to that of Corpus Christi, Texas and Santa Ana, California.

When the final whistle blew, it sparked celebrations amongst the players, coaches and fans, before the fans and players conducted the now-famous viking clap in celebration.
