Iceland call up Bluebirds ace
Cardiff City's Aaron Gunnarsson has been named in the Iceland squad for this month's Euro 2020 qualifiers against Andorra and France.
The Bluebirds midfielder is part of a 23-man squad for the two away matches, to take place on March 22 and March 25.
Coach Erik Hamren has called up Alfred Finnbogason, despite the Augsburg striker having struggled with injuries in recent weeks.
Reading forward Jon Dadi Bodvarsson has been omitted as he is battling a calf problem while Kolbeinn Sigþórsson makes the squad, even though he is without a club after reaching an agreement to rescind his contract with the Nantes.
