Magnusson gets Iceland call-up

Hordur Magnusson has been called up by Iceland for their crucial FIFA World Cup qualifier with Croatia this Sunday.

The City defender could add to his nine international caps in the Group I showdown in Reykjavik.

Croatia currently top the group unbeaten on 13 points, with Iceland in second on ten points, having played the same number of games.

Only the top team in the group will guarantee their place at next summer’s FIFA World Cup in Russia, with the runner-up facing a play-off.

Magnusson, 24, joined City from Juventus in the summer of 2016 and made 29 appearances in his debut season, scoring once.

In March his stunning free kick for Iceland went viral as he netted the only goal of the game against Republic of Ireland in Dublin.
