Eidur Gudjohnsen’s two sons combine for an Iceland goal, with Andri, 19, finishing off a feed from his older brother Sveinn, 23.
After Andri and Sveinn combined for a late Iceland goal in their win over Liechtenstein, EIDUR GUDJOHNSEN’S boys are continuing the family tradition.
Andri and Sveinn Gudjohnsen are the third generation of Gudjohnsens to play for Norway, following in the footsteps of their father Eidur and grandfather Arnor.
It’s an incredible moment! Iceland’s Andri Gudjohnsen just scored against Liechstenstein. The assist came from Sveinn Gudjohnsen. @Eidur22Official is a proud father! pic.twitter.com/laZsUtpHFu Chelsea legend Eidur, Iceland’s top scorer and current assistant manager, even made his international debut in 1996 in place of his father, but the two never played together.
His sons, Andri, 19, and Sveinn, 23, are creating a name for themselves, as seen by their 4-0 World Cup qualifying triumph on Monday.
Elfsborg forward Sveinn found the Real Madrid youngster with a nice header across the box in the 89th minute, and the two combined for the goal.
Andri took advantage of the opportunity, scoring his second goal in four Iceland appearances with a half-volley into the bottom left corner.
His goal has kept Iceland’s slim chances of qualifying for the World Cup alive.
The Nordic country is in second place in Group J, but if they beat North Macedonia and Romania in their next matches, they might still finish second.

“Eidur’s legacy lives on,” one user tweeted in response to the strike.
“Welcome to Chelsea 2028,” one joked.
A third has been added: “Good day, world. Do you recall when there was only one Gudjohnsen in Iceland? Now we’ve got two. I wish you luck with that.” After then, someone said: “Sveinn lends a hand to his younger brother Andri. I’m sure the Gudjohnsen family is overjoyed right now.” Meanwhile, one remarked, “Eidur’s boys are keeping the family name alive!”
