Edmundsson was capped at under-19, under-21, during which he scored a memorable goal in a shock 1–0 win over Russia, and full international level while playing in his homeland, making his debut against France in August 2009. He scored his first senior goal in the 2–1 defeat to Estonia on 11 August 2010, this was the first goal of the UEFA Euro 2012 qualifying.[9] He also played in the Faroe Islands' qualifying fixture with Northern Ireland up front.
