HEIMIR HALLGRIMSSON has stepped down as Iceland manager after seven years in charge.
The 51-year-old guided his country to their first World Cup and he was at the helm for the Euro 2016 win over England.
After Iceland finished bottom of their group in Russia, the Iceland FA confirmed his departure on Twitter.
It read: “The FA of Iceland can now confirm that Heimir Hallgrimsson will not continue as head coach of the Icelandic men’s national team.
“Hallgrimsson steps down as Iceland coach at his own request after 7 seven years in the job, having joined in 2011.”
Despite losing two out of their three matches at the World Cup, Hallgrimsson’s men managed an impressive 1-1 draw with Argentina.
Hallgrimsson achieved legendary status in Iceland when he guided his team to the Euro 2016 quarter-finals.
His team drew against Portugal and Hungary before beating Austria to qualify for the last 16.
The underdogs beat England 2-1, but were knocked out in the quarter-finals after a 5-2 defeat to France.
He took over the minnows in 2011 alongside Lars Lagerback, where they started their careers as joint managers.
