Concerns over the fitness of Gylfi Sigurdsson prior to the World Cup look to be a little misplaced following his performance in the historic 1-1 draw with Argentina on Saturday.
The Iceland star suffered a serious knee ligament injury back in March, and despite the early optimism, Sigurdsson did not play another competitive match during 2017/18. His lack of game-time called into question his selection for the national side. However, after just 87 minutes of competitive football, Sigurdsson starred against standout favourites Argentina. The influential skipper covered more ground, during the Group D opener [11,048 m], than any other player, in fact, it was a kilometre more than the team average. Sigurdsson attempted 41 sprints, of which, 3% were over 20 km/h with a top speed 27.22 km/h, once again topping his international teammates. "Generally, he’s very fit," Icelandic football reporter Magnus Mar Einarsson said: "You could see that some of the players were very tired towards the end of the game, but not Gylfi. He leads by example, putting all the running in." Jun 18 - 10:46 AM
