Legendary playmaker Ásgeir "Sigi" Sigurvinsson is selected as the best footballer in history of Iceland. After a year of IB Vestmannaeyja, his home club, Sigurvinsson moved - one of the first Icelanders - abroad. After eight years in Belgium in the first division side Standard Liege he moved to Germany 1981/82 to play for Bayern Munich. His league debut was on 22 August 1981 (Round 3) in the 3-1 home win over Werder Bremen, he managed his first goal on 30 March 1982 (Round 26) in a 3-0 victory in the away game against 1 FC Nuremberg. In addition, he played three times in the national (DFB) Cup and five times in the international cup competition (European Champions Cup). He then moved for a million D-Mark to VfB Stuttgart and stayed there for eight years. In the 1983/84 season he was on the side of Karl Allgower and Guido Buchwald winning the German championship. Ásgeir is regarded as "century-footballer" of Iceland. In the media as the "Ice-Zico" titled midfielder was particularly in his years with the Swabians (1982-1990) a playmaker of international class and can certainly be called in a same level with Overath, Netzer, Flohe, Magath and Breitner. In addition to his undisputed outstanding footballing abilities (passing, shooting power, mental and running strength), he was also a team player, real leader on the pitch. For the national team of his country Sigurvinsson played in 45 games and scoring five goals. He made his debut on 3 July 1972 in a test match in the 2:5 defeat by Denmark in Reykjavik. His first international goal he scored on 5 June 1975, in group play of the European Championship qualification in a 2-1 victory in the return match against East Germany. His last assignment in the national team was on 20 September 1989 in the qualifier for 1990 World Cup in a 2-1 victory in the return match against Turkey. He won Belgium Cup in 1981, DFB Cup in 1982 and German league in 1984. From 1990–1993 he was scout of VfB Stuttgart, from April till November 1993 coach of Fram Reykjavík. From 09/05/2003 till 31/10/2005 Sigurvinsson was coach of Icelands NT.
