It has been an exciting two days for Arnór Traustason. One day after being announced as the latest signee for the New England Revolution, the 27-year-old attacker was informed that he would be representing his home country of Iceland in the upcoming UEFA 2022 FIFA World Cup Qualifiers happening later this month.

The Keflavik native looks to add to his impressive international resume which includes 37 caps along with 5 goals for Iceland.

Revs fans may remember Traustason from Iceland’s 2016 EURO’s appearance where Arnór scored a game-winning goal in stoppage time against Austria that sent Iceland into the knockout stage of the competition. Traustason and Iceland would eventually make it to the Quarterfinals of the 2016 EURO’s where they suffered a 5-2 loss to France, the nation’s greatest finish in continental competition.

Revs fans can catch a glimpse of the Revs newest signing on March 25th as Iceland opens group stage action against Germany at 3:45 PM EST. Iceland returns to action again on March 28th as they take on Armenia at 12:00 PM EST, followed by Liechtenstein on March 31st at 2:45 PM EST.

After competing for Iceland, Traustason hopes to join the Revs in Los Angeles for preseason after receiving his P-1 Visa and International Transfer Certificate.
