Ahead of tonight's qualifier against Greece, Faroe Islands captain Fródi Benjaminsen has announced that he will retire from football at the end of the year. The 37-year-old should win a record 84th cap for the Faroe Islands today – surpassing Óli Johannesen's official mark of 83.
The Faroe Islands start their preperations for Saturday's qualifier against Greece today without left-back Viljormur Davidsen, who has withdrawn because of injury. In his place, Einar Tróndargjógv (formerly Hansen) has been called up; the most recent of his 12 caps was in 2011. Winger Árni Frederiksberg is also a doubt after injury in Sunday's league game between HB Tórshavn and NSÍ Runavík.
