After an 11-match wait, spanning 25 years, Iceland finally overcame Norway as they earned a 2-0 win against their rivals in 2014 FIFA World Cup qualifying Group E.

Goals in either half from Kári Árnason and Alfred Finnbogason did the damage as Lars Lägerback's charges made history and got their campaign off to the perfect start.
