Over his 165 minutes played, Traustason was able to assist on one of Iceland’s four goals against Liechtenstein.
Iceland will play against Mexico on May 9th at 8:30 PM EST, the Faroe Islands on June 4th at 2:45 PM EST, and Poland on June 8th at noon EST. Traustason will not be joining the team until after their first matchup against Mexico but will be available to play in the June 4th and June 8th matchups.
Throughout his international career with Iceland, Traustason has appeared in 40 matches where he has bagged a total of five goals.
