Iceland has announced its squad for the 2018 World Cup in Russia, and the tiny island nation did it in style. The team was revealed Friday with an over-the-top hype video

Iceland has made history as the smallest nation to ever qualify for a World Cup. Iceland locked up an automatic berth in October by defeating Kosovo 2–0 in a match in Reykjavik by winning Group I in the UEFA World Cup qualifiers.

The European nation's selection includes playmaker Gylfi Sigurdsson and captain Aron Gunnarsson even though both midfielders are out injured.

Sigurdsson, Iceland's star player, has been dealing with a knee injury since early March and will miss the final game of the English Premier League on Sunday for Everton, while Gunnarsson is recovering from knee surgery.

Watch the video below for Iceland's full squad:

Iceland will play two friendlies before the start of the World Cup. Argentina, Croatia and Nigeria are in Iceland's World Cup group.
