Guðmundur has commentated matches live for Icelandic television and was the commentator for Iceland's matches at UEFA Euro 2016. His enthusiastic commentary earned him international praise. One especially memorable commentary came immediately after full-time of Iceland's 2–1 win over England in the round of 16 (English translation given here):
This is done! This is done! We are never going home! Did you see that? Amazing! I can't believe it! This is a dream. Never wake me from this amazing dream! Live the way you want, England! Iceland is going to play France on Sunday. France Iceland! You can go home. You can go out of Europe. You can go wherever the hell you want. England 1 Iceland 2 is the closing score here in Nice. And the fairytale continues.
