In this special edition of our 'Benfiquistas around the Globe' feature, we caught up with Gunnleifur Gunnleifsson, who recently completed his 23rd season as a professional footballer. The vastly-experienced goalkeeper has represented Iceland on 26 occasions, and was part of the squad that famously qualified for Euro 2016. We quizzed Gunnleifur about his own career, his love for Benfica, and his thoughts on Mile Svilar, Júlio César, Ederson and Jan Oblak.

After returning to the scoresheet during Benfica’s 4-0 victory over Feirense on Matchday 7, the Argentinean told A Bola how delighted he is with his new club, and how he has experienced a great deal of change in his life while adapting to a new country.
