Iceland celebrating Viking style after Euro 2016
The Icelandic national football team gets a fantastic reception when returning to Iceland, after its heroic matches in the EURO 2016 football finals in France.

Thousands of vikings are gathered to perform the iconic "Viking Clap" and celebrate the players like true heroes.

This is so crazy! HUH HUH HUH HUH!

No wonder the English were frightened (and lost) with these guys on the stand.

Actually no wonder why the English were frightened a 1000 years ago too.

Descendants of Vikings

Iceland has a population of about 330,000 and an area of 103,000 km2 (40,000 sq mi), making it the most sparsely populated country in Europe.

According to Landnámabók, the settlement of Iceland began in the year AD 874 when the Norwegian chieftain Ingólfr Arnarson became the first permanent settler on the island. In the following centuries, mainly Norwegians and to a smaller extent other Scandinavians settled Iceland.
