Ari Skulason started out as a midfielder but was converted to a left-back during 2014 FIFA World Cup Brazil™ qualifying. He subsequently asked to switch positions at club level in order to improve his chances with the national team - and it paid off: Skulason started all five of Iceland's matches at UEFA EURO 2016.

However, he lost his place to Hordur Bjorgvin Magnusson en route to Russia 2018 and is initially likely to be among the substitutes at the tournament.

Nevertheless, having already amassed over 50 international caps his experience could still prove very valuable to the side in Russia.
