Saw an interesting piece on the BBC about youth drug and alcohol use in Iceland.Maybe another reason for their improvement in football.

In 1998, 42% of Iceland’s 15 and 16 year-olds reported that they had got drunk in the past 30 days. By 2016, though, this figure had fallen to just 5% and drug use and smoking had also sharply declined.
