Former Super Eagles coach Lars Lagerbäck’s reign as Iceland head coach has come to an end following his side’s exit from the ongoing Euro 2016 championship in France.
Iceland back in May had announced that the Swede would not continue after the tournament, their first-ever appearance on the major international stage.
And the former Eagles’ boss who led Nigeria to a poor outing in the FIFA 2010 World Cup in South Africa has now confirmed that he will be standing down to give opportunity to Heimir Hallgrímsson.
Shortly thereafter Lagerbäck signed a new contract, this time as joint manager with his former Iceland assistant Heimir Hallgrímsson, who will then be the sole manager following Euro 2016, with Lagerbäck retiring.
