Gudmundsson highlights similarities between Burnley and Iceland

Burnley winger Johann Berg Gudmundsson thinks that the Clarets and Euro2016 heroes Iceland have a lot in common.

The 25-year-old, who joined the Clarets from Charlton Athletic in the summer, was a part of the Iceland team that defeated England in the last-16 of the summer's tournament and suggests there are likenesses between his club and country teams.

He said ahead of Monday night's clash with Watford: "When you play in England and you beat England everybody's going to be asking about that.

"I look at Burnley and Iceland. We're not exactly the same but there are similarities.

"Most of the time we play 4-4-2, both are hard-working teams. So it was easy to slot into this dressing room, which is similar as well.

"Everybody gets along, everybody's mates and set for the same goal.

"I don't think anyone expects too much of Burnley and I've slotted into the way we play."
