Ingvar Jónsson (born 18 October 1989) is an Icelandic football goalkeeper who plays for Viborg FF and Iceland national team.

He made his senior debut in 2014, earning 7 caps for Iceland and was selected for Euro 2016 as an unused member.

Club career[edit]

Ingvar started his career with local club Njarðvík before moving to Stjarnan in the Úrvalsdeild before the 2011 season.[1] With Stjarnan he won the 2014 Úrvalsdeild and was after the season voted by his fellow players the best player of the 2014 Úrvalsdeild.[2] Stjarnan also had a good Europa League run in 2014, advancing past Bangor City, Motherwell and Lech Poznań before losing to Inter Milan in the play-off round.[3]

In 2015, he joined IK Start, but could not secure the first spot in competition with Håkon Opdal. In the summer transfer window, he thus joined Sandnes Ulf on loan.[4]

International career[edit]

Ingvar made his first international appearance on 12 November 2014 in a match against Belgium, when he came on as a substitute for Ögmundur Kristinsson at half-time.[5]

He was selected for EURO 2016.[6]
