Iceland won a soccer game yesterday.
Normally, this would not be global news.
But this win happened to be the one that qualified Iceland for the knockout stages of a major tournament for the first time in the 323,000-person island nation’s sporting history.
And at the moment qualification was secured — care of a stoppage-time goal from Arnor Ingvi Traustason — Guðmundur “Gummi Ben” Benediktsson, who was calling the game on Icelandic national television, turned into a human-shaped pile of orgasmic jubilation.
Iceland plays England in the first knockout round on Monday at 3 EST.
If they win, Benediktsson will almost certainly spontaneously combust.
