  • HÚH! Even the Carmelite nuns are caught up in the football fever! Photo/Karlem Iceland-Facebook

Nuns from the Icelandic branch of the Carmelite Monastic Order staged a Viking War Cry to show their support for the Icelandic national football team in Russia. The nuns released their video ahead of the match with Nigeria on June 22, but the message is just as relevant today! The Icelandic team needs all the support it can get! 

The Carmelite monastery in Iceland was established in 1939. The monastery is located in Hafnarfjörður, a suburb of Reykjavík.
