Just one day before the 2022 World Cup qualifier between North Macedonia and Iceland, a billboard posted just near the Skopje stadium announces:
“Dear Arnar Vidarsson, your beer is ready!”
The message, plotted by Timișoreana beer, the official sponsor of Romania’s national football team, comes as a very funny response to the statement made by the coach of Iceland, who said: “We will do a good job in Macedonia, and you’ll buy me a beer on my return”. A day later, 3 such billboards were already waiting for the Icelandic players, on the road from the hotel to the Skopje stadium.
And even if everything started as a joke, the Romanian national sponsor promises the Icelandic coach not only a symbolic beer, but beer for the whole year, as a long-awaited qualification deserves to be celebrated.
“Arnar Vidarsson, game on!”.
