Tough tests for Iceland

Iceland have named their squad for a international tournament starting later this month against England and Japan in Manchester.

The two friendlies against the 2002 FIFA World Cup co-hosts Japan on 30 May and the UEFA EURO 2004 finalists England on 5 June will serve as warm-ups for the start of 2006 World Cup qualifying later this year. "It is an important part of our preparation," coach Ásgeir Sigurvinsson said. "England and Japan are tough opponents but we will do our best to get satisfying results."

Here's the squad selected for the matches: Arason, Finnbogason, Hreidarsson, Marteinsson (in picture), Helgason, Ingimarsson, Jónsson, K O Sigurdsson, Gretarsson, T Gudjónsson, B B Gunnarsson, J K Gudjónsson, Sigurdsson, B Gudjónsson, J Gudmundsson, H Sigurdsson, T Gudmundsson, Gudjohnsen, Helguson, Baldvinsson.

Premier Division: Days 2 and 3

Second draw for ÍA Akranes at home, as this weekend's game against Grindavik ended with both teams being unable to score. Meanwhile, last night's game at Fram gave Akranes their first win of the season, with a 2-0 victory at the Laugardalsvollur. With 5 points from 3 matches, Akranes reaches second place and waits for the results of the other four games, to be played next thursday.
