Keflavík’s main striker Gudmundur Steinarsson could have made it honours even seven minutes later but his effort smashed against the woodwork.

In the 39th minute, FH Hafnarfjördur doubled the lead through defender Freyr Bjarnason who headed the ball in the back of the net after a corner. On the stroke of half-time prolific Iceland international striker Tryggvi Gudmundsson extended the lead to three goals and a comfortable win seemed to be on the cards for the Hafnarfjördur side.

Keflavík however started the second half more brightly and ten minutes into the second-half Keflavík had scored to make it 3-1, through Faroe Islands international Símun Samuelsen Keflavík continued to press and got their award in the 72nd minutes when Icelandic midfielder Hólmar Örn Rúnarsson scored after losing his marker.

Despite the brave come-back from Keflavík, FH Hafnarfjördur held on to win the game 3-2 and are the 2006 Icelandic League Cup Winners.
