International Friendly against Iceland ... again again
The Faroe Islands will play another friendly international against Iceland on 14 August as preparations for the World Cup qualifiers against Kazakhstan, Germany and Austria in September and October.

The match against Iceland will be played on Iceland’s international a stadium, Laugardalsvöllur. The two countries also met last August, and do that more or less once a year. The Faroes just have to be thankful for it, because nobody else wants to play friendly games against the Faroe Islands.

But before all this, the Faroes will visit Ireland on 7 June and Sweden on 11 June in World Cup qualifiers.
