Sveinn Aron and Andri Gudjohnsen scored a late goal in Iceland’s 4-0 World Cup qualification Group J win over Liechtenstein on Monday, continuing the Gudjohnsen family’s great goalscoring legacy with the national team.

Eidur, their father, is the joint highest scorer in the country with 26 international goals. When he made his debut in 1996, he came off the bench to replace his father Arnor, who had 14 goals in 73 internationals, but the two never played together.

His sons, on the other hand, had their chance on Monday when older brother Sveinn Aron (23) came in in the 65th minute with the score at 2-0 and the hosts added another with a penalty for Albert Gudmundsson before Andri (19) came on in the 80th minute.

Sveinn set up Andri for the game’s fourth and final goal nine minutes later, but despite the win and the delight of the family, Iceland remains second from bottom in the six-team group with eight points with two games remaining.
