Hilmar Leon Jakobsen portrays well how strange and surreal this is being 2020 in general. This man born in the Faroe Islands, leaves us another of those stories that are worth seeing to believe. Yours in particular, go from being international with the handball team of your country to being international with the football team in such a single 10 months and with the coronavirus crisis as protagonist.
Hilmar Leon Jakobsen the player who finished in the Faroe Islands team by Covid
The Faroese player made his debut in the November national team break against Lithuania and also played against Latvia. The curious thing about the theme of this' new’ footballer is that in January he was playing handball and was international with his country. At the time of the ‘pandemic’ I was playing the qualifying phase for the Handball World Cup but the stoppage of the whole planet due to Covid changed everything.
A) Yes, thus, the International in handball also became International in soccer in just 10 months. Something unthinkable in another country in the world but perhaps not so much in a country with only 52.000 inhabitants where to find elite athletes (that they compete in 2 sports like Jakobsen) it's quite difficult.
