However this shouldn’t dampen the mood to much for Finnbogason as he became the clubs all-time top goal-scorer in the Eredivisie with 48 goals in just 57 games.

This is a remarkable achievement for the 25-year old as he has only been at the club for a mere two seasons. His goal meant he over took club legend Gerald Sibon, who scored 47 goals in three stints at the club.

This feat caps off a fantastic season for the Icelandic international as he is currently the league’s leading goal scorer with 24 goals in 26 league games, meaning he has already equalled his goal tally for last season.

Finnbogason spoke about his achievement after the game,

“Obviously I’m very proud”

“This is an honour because there are a lot of good strikers who have played at Heerenveen.” He told Voetbal International.
