World Cup 2018: Mourinho reveals Iceland’s secrets ahead of Super Eagles clash

Manchester United manager, Jose Mourinho, has joked that Iceland are such a physically strong team, because they ate meat for breakfast as babies.

The small Scandinavian country are making their World Cup debut in Russia and claimed a surprise 1-1 draw with Argentina in their opening Group D match.

Mourinho was very impressed by their performance against the two-time winners.

“Absolutely fantastic also was the commitment, the spirit, the strength [displayed by Iceland].

“I think since they were babies they were eating a lot of meat on breakfast.

“A lot of them were very, very strong and very, very fit and I think the football that they play is perfectly adapted to the way that they are,” Mourinho told RT.

Iceland take on the Super Eagles of Nigeria in their next game on Friday at the Volgograd Stadium.
