Croatia 2 - 1 Iceland at the FIFA World Cup 2018

Zlatko Dalić, coach of Croatian natianal soccer team, born in Livno, Bosnia and Herzegovina.
HNS on Croatian Coat of Arms stands for Hrvatski Nogometni Savez - Croatian Football Union.
Nogomet = Football, is derived from noga - foot.

Iceland was among the first countries to diplomatically recognize Croatia, on 19th December 1991. However, the Croatian state continuity is very old:

Ivica Kostelić with his beautiful wife Elin Arnarsdottir from Iceland, immediately after their marriage in the church of St. Mark in Zagreb 2014.
Behind them are the flags of Croatia and Iceland. Second from the left is Ante Kostelić-Gips (gips = plaster, guess why this nickname!), father of Ivica and Janica Kostelić, famous skiers.

In Croatia's capital Zagreb there is a street named after Iceland (Islandska ulica), about 700 m of length.
