Don’t you love the “Skol” Vikings chant getting mocked? Me too.
First, the Eagles did it against the Vikings with “Foles.”

A couple months later, the Sixers tweaked it with “Fultz.”

And now about three months after that, the “Skol” mockery happened again. On the international level.
Nigeria defeated Iceland 2-0 in Group D play at the FIFA World Cup. Nigeria’s nickname is the “Super Eagles.” They happen to wear green. Iceland is known for the Viking chant known as the “thunder clap.”
So you could say the Eagles once again defeated the Vikings. And with that in mind, Nigerian fans made fun of the “skol” chant.
Lol. Cold blooded. pic.twitter.com/6YEgiCZTYS

The Vikings also gave their support to Iceland before kickoff. A quick look at some of the replies:
There’s plenty more Eagle replies. It’s fantastic.
Maybe both teams should just never do the chant again.
