Eidur Gudjohnsen named to Iceland's squad for Euro 2016

Iceland have named 37-year-old former Chelsea and Barcelona forward Eidur Gudjohnsen to their squad for Euro 2016.

Gudjohnsen, who has 84 caps to his name, has played with Molde in Norway since February after a short stint in China.

"If he hadn't found a club in January, he would not have been picked," Iceland co-manager Lars Lagerback said.

After initially announcing his international retirement in November 2013, Gudjohnsen returned to play in three Euro qualifying matches.

Iceland will be playing in a major tournament for the first time.

Lagerback also confirmed he would leave the team after the Euros, leaving it with his coaching partner Heimir Hallgrímsson.

"It was a very hard decision, I have to admit I haven't gotten any younger," Lagerback said. "But the main reason is that maybe I should do something else with friends and family."

The full squad:

Goalkeepers: Hannes Halldórsson (Bodø/Glimt), Ogmundur Kristinsson (Hammarby), Ingvar Jonsson (Sandefjord)

Defenders: Ari Skulason (OB), Hordur Magnusson (Cesena), Hjortur Hermannsson (PSV Eindhoven), Ragnar Sigurdsson (Krasnodar), Kari Arnason (Malmo), Sverrir Ingi Ingason (Lokeren), Birkir Saevarsson (Hammarby), Haukur Heidar Hauksson (AIK).
