Eidur Gudjohnsen Breaks Into Tears After Missing World Cup

Iceland footballer Eidur Gudjohnsen broke into tears in a post-match interview after his country lost 2-0 to Croatia and failed to reach the World Cup tonight.

In the interview (skip to minute 2:25), Gudjohnsen was asked by the reporter: “You have now played with the national team since 1996 and had made some great memories for us. What will your future with Iceland be?”

Gudjohnsen answered:

“I’m pretty sure that was my final game for Iceland.”

Gudjohnsen earned more than 77 caps for Iceland, and helped take his country to the brink of qualification for World Cup 2014. After a club career that spanned playing for such high-profile clubs as Barcelona, Chelsea and Monaco, Gudjohnsen currently plays for Club Brugge in Belgium.

You have to feel for Gudjohnsen who wore his heart on his sleeve during the post match interview. He helped take the Icelandic team to the greatest heights his country has ever seen. Hats off to Eidur for being man enough to let his emotions out.

Here’s the video of the post-match interview.
