Iceland may be an underdog against Portugal in their opening Euro 2016 game, but they have at least one very powerful supporter.
Hafþór Björnsson, who plays “The Mountain” on Game of Thrones, is perhaps the most famous Icelandic person in the world. He wants his country to win, and he’s gone as far as to threaten physical violence against Portugal’s star player.
If Cristiano Ronaldo scores against Iceland, Björnsson says he’ll “crush your head like [Game of Thrones Season 5 spoiler].”
Icelanders just won’t stop talking trash about Ronaldo. The team’s coach said Monday that Ronaldo flops so much he “could be in Hollywood.”
