Iceland coach Heimir Hallgrimsson says it would be foolhardy for anyone to underestimate his team in the Russia 2018 World Cup  after they  earned a  point in their David  versus Goliath  fixture against  Argentina at  Spartak Stadium in Moscow  on Saturday.
Augsburg  forward Alfred Finnbogason  secured a 1-1 draw for the tiny European country after he rifled home in the 22nd minute to make history as the first-ever  player to score Iceland’s goal in the World Cup after Sergio Aguero’s 18th minute goal.
Powerhouse Argentina were gifted an opportunity to win the match from the spot through Barcelona superstar Lionel  Messi but Hannes Halldorsson emerged as Iceland hero as he palmed Messi’s shot away.
And Hallgrimsson, who  will lead  the World Cup debutants in the second group game against Nigeria at in Volgograd on June  22,  says  Our Boys  will aim to pull off another shock result.
Hallgrimsson hinted that he would abandon  the team’s traditional 4-4-2 formation  and play negative tactics against the Eagles  like they did against Argentina.
