Sigurdsson to make World Cup squad

Icelandic star Gylfi Sigurdsson has been included in his country's squad for the World Cup in Russia this summer. The Everton man had missed the final stages of the Toffees' Premier League campaign this season.



An injury ruled out the former Tottenham and Swansea City man, but Iceland have opted to take the player to the tournament regardless.

Sigurdsson had picked up the injury for Everton back in March.
