The Iceland men's national football team (Icelandic: Íslenska karlalandsliðið í knattspyrnu) is the national men's football team of Iceland and is controlled by the Football Association of Iceland.

Although Iceland is one of Europe's smaller football nations, the football team has enjoyed success in the 21st century. In the qualifying rounds for the 2014 FIFA World Cup, Iceland reached the play offs before losing to Croatia. Iceland reached its first major tournament, UEFA Euro 2016, after a qualification campaign which included home and away wins over the Netherlands.

In doing so, they became the smallest ever nation to qualify for a major tournament. Iceland was allocated to Euro 2016 Group F. Birkir Bjarnason scored Iceland's first major tournament goal in the 50th minute against Portugal in a group stage match.

After advancing to the knockout stages of Euro 2016, Iceland defeated England in the Round of 16, advancing to the quarter-finals, where they lost to France 5–2. Iceland finished eighth in the tournament, with two wins, two draws and one defeat.
