World Cup debutant Iceland has announced their 23-man squad for the World Cup in Russia through a video on YouTube on Friday.

Gylfi Sigurdsson, the attacking midfielder from English Premier League side Everton, was included in the squad although he has been out with a knee injury since early March.

Iceland has been drawn into Group D with Argentina, Nigeria and Croatia in the upcoming World Cup.
