Burnley's Gudmundsson wants Iceland-England rematch in World Cup

The FC crew break down how Iceland were able to make history and become the smallest country to qualify for the World Cup.

Iceland's Johann Berg Gudmundsson is gunning for England again at next summer's World Cup and would be confident of scoring another famous victory.

Burnley winger Gudmundsson was part of the side which bundled the Three Lions out of Euro 2016 with a shock 2-1 win in Nice and is already dreaming of a rematch in Russia.

Roy Hodgson paid for that last-16 loss with his job and Iceland, after becoming the smallest nation ever to win a World Cup place, would welcome the chance to reopen the wounds in...

Barton loses his head as Burnley are booted by non-league Lincoln

Burnley suffered their second embarrassing cup exit of the season, missing a golden chance to reach the FA Cup quarterfinals after being deservedly dumped out 1-0 by non-league Lincoln City.

It was a dire game with neither side possessing much quality and the rugged Imps scored from their only chance of the second half, with the Clarets similarly lacking incision in the final third.

With a cluster of rotten individual performances, Burnley did not seem up for the physical battle waged by Lincoln...

Marney, Gudmundsson impress before injury spoils Burnley's resistance

It was a sign of how well Burnley played in parts of Saturday's 2-1 home loss to Manchester City that the result felt disappointing, despite few backing the Clarets to get anything from the game.

Injuries shortly before half-time to both goalscorer Dean Marney and Johann Gudmundsson derailed the hosts' effort and the final scoreline, earned for City by Sergio Aguero's brace, was possibly fair overall, although there should have been an early penalty for a foul on Jeff Hendrick by Nicolas Otamendi.



Johann Gudmundsson on song as Ashley Barnes wins it for Burnley

A crazy game at Turf Moor ended in pandemonium in the stands as Ashley Barnes wrapped up a 3-2 thriller with the winner in stoppage time on Saturday.

Burnley seemed to have thrown away a two-goal lead and Crystal Palace felt the likelier victors in the closing minutes, but the team's desire and determination shone as they maintained their excellent home form to move up to ninth in the league.


Rarely have the Clarets ever looked this dangerous on the break and Palace did not cope with their...

England lost their indentity under Roy Hodgson - Gudmundsson

England lost their identity under Roy Hodgson but Sam Allardyce can restore national pride, according to Burnley's Iceland hero Johann Berg Gudmundsson.

Midfielder Gudmundsson left Charlton for Premier League new boys Burnley in a £2.5 million deal during a summer when he also helped Iceland knock England out of Euro 2016.

Iceland's 2-1 victory dumped England out of the Euros and cost boss Hodgson his job, with Gudmundsson now admitting it was a shock result that should never have happened.


One key transfer to watch for every Premier League team in 2016-17

Will newly acquired Henrikh Mkhitaryan have a major impact for Manchester United in 2016-17?
Will newly acquired Henrikh Mkhitaryan have a major impact for Manchester United in 2016-17?

With the Premier League awash in television contract money, the transfer market has not been quiet this summer. Plenty of new recruits have landed in advance of the new season, and there is no doubt that much more trading will take place before the transfer window shuts on Sept. 1. For now, in advance of the big kickoff on Aug.13, let's look at a key signing for each club and speculate how he will fit into his new environment:

Arsenal | Granit Xhaka | Midfield

Signed from: Borussia Monchengladbach

The amount of time Mathieu Flamini spent playing in Arsenal's midfield last season (1089 minutes) was a stark indication that reinforcements were needed. With Mikel Arteta also departing, this time into retirement, the signing of Xhaka brings relative youth and added energy into the centre of the team. He's a high-volume passer, having averaged around 70 passes per game for the last two seasons, but he also has a bit of bite: his tackle and interception rate has been over five per game. To be critical, his four fouls conceded per game is a touch high and he may have to learn to rein that in, but otherwise the Switzerland international, who turns 24 in September, looks a solid recruit.
