Iceland's World Cup coach Hallgrimsson joins Al Arabi


DOHA: Iceland coach Heimir Hallgrimsson, who guided his country to first-ever World Cup, will join Qatar Stars League side Al Arabi.

According to the club’s twitter handle, Hallgrimsson will be officially unveiled at a Press Conference here on Tuesday.

It will be 51-year-old’s first job since standing down as Iceland’s national team coach following the FIFA World Cup in June-July this year.

His time with Iceland saw the country achieve unparalleled success, qualifying for its first ever major tournament, the 2016 Euros in France, when Hallgrimsson was joint manager alongside Lars Lagerback.
