Video: Some fairly rough stuff goes on in Icelandic indoor soccer
We’ve all seen bouts of violence in indoor soccer but this clip from Iceland takes it up a notch or two.
There is something about the combination of confined space and chronic unfitness that leads to the fairly vicious nature of most indoor soccer matches. Trips onto hard floors, nudges into hard walls and all sorts of off the ball stuff make it a game where the threat of a bit of pain is never too far away.
But if you ever get asked to play in a tournament in Iceland, it might be best if you give it a miss. This video is a compilation of bits from what looks like a junior tournament up there and it contains some of the most violent incidents we have ever seen inside a gym.
Entertaining to watch though.
