Gretarsson (#18) reacts to the defeat in Wroclaw

Icelandic midfielder Daniel Leo Gretarsson expressed confidence that Ukraine won due to luck in the final of the Euro 2024 playoffs. The 28-year-old footballer noted that he and his teammates managed to defend very well, and the final score (1-2) was a real shock for them.

Gretarsson said this in a commentary to the mbl.is portal, summarizing the results of the match in Wroclaw. The guest player added that the game with Ukraine was one of the most important in his career, and therefore it was extremely difficult to accept defeat in it, as the "blue and yellows" did not create a large number of goal-scoring chances.

"This is not what we planned. We wanted to go to the European Championships, but it didn't happen today. They didn't create many chances for us, so I think they were just lucky. We had our chances. When they had the ball, they didn't create much. We felt good in defense. This is one of the most important games in your career, and the result is hard to accept. The guys are still shocked," Gretarsson said.
