Biggest Newspaper in Denmark Changes Logo in Support For Iceland Tonight

The biggest newspaper in Denmark has pledged its support for Iceland ahead of their huge Euro 2016 clash against Austria this evening.

Heimir Hallgrímsson and Lars Lagerbäck’s men have a real chance of reaching the last 16 of the competition if results go their way tonight.

They sit second in Group F with two points alongside Portugal, while Hungary lead it with four and Austria sit at the foot of it with one.

A draw could even see Iceland through as one of the best third-placed teams, but a win over the Austrians would really do the job.

And Politiken – the biggest newspaper in Denmark – has forgotten all about the failings of its own national team in getting to the Euros and pledged its support to Iceland by changing their logo.

As can be seen from the paper’s website, the Icelandic flag has been edited into the letter o of their Politiken banner:

It’s a pretty big step for the Danish newspaper as its unusual for one so popular in one country to show support for another.

Now it’s over to Iceland to make that backing worthwhile when they face Austria at 5pm.
