Iceland vs Trinidad...It Ends in '..Land' , You See

I blogged a week or two ago about England choosing their friendlies based on the the similarity between the names of the teams they are playing in the World Cup and the names of the teams they've chosen for the friendlies. That post is here.

It seems that Trinidad and Tobago are doing the same thing. They are in England's group, so obviously they need to play a team whose name ends in '..land'. In my original post, I had suggested Holland, but they've very wisely ignored me and decided to play Iceland instead.

The match takes place at Loftus Road (home of QPR) in February and is sure to be well supported by the massive Icelandic community in West London. More info on

I'm sincerely hoping that more teams pick their warm up matches on this basis and am particularly looking foward to seeing who Serbia and Montenegro find to play.
Digg!

Actually, Trinidad originally wanted to play Wales, but they blanked us to play Paraguay instead. Tsk.

Actually the point of playing Iceland is to test the temam's mettle against a side that plays a similar style to Sweden.

Its not all about England.
