FC Stjarnan won the Icelandic league in spectacular fashion on Saturday, beating FH on a penalty kick in injury time to overtake them for the title.
Trailing FH by two points going into the match, Stjarnan needed one more goal to break the tie and steal the title from the home team on the final day. That’s when was brought down in the box by and Ólafur Karl
converted the kick to deliver one of the most dramatic finishes to a title race in recent memory.
No. 1 vs. No. 2 on the final day of the season? Check.
Title-winning goal in the 93th minute? Yup. Here are the highlights.
Player attacking the ref and requiring FOUR different teammates to hold him back? We have that, too.
What was that defender thinking? It couldn’t be more obvious of a foul!
Oh, and did FC Stjarnan sound a little familiar?
You might remember them for their infamous, way over-the-top goal celebrations, such as the classic “Going Fishing” routine and - cringe - “The Birth.”
Imagine being on the other team and losing to these guys. Horror show! And now that they’ve won the title? Let’s just say we might see our first two-minute cheerleading routine on a soccer field next season, and it will come out of Iceland.
