With about 335,000 residents, Iceland easily bested Trinidad & Tobago’s population of 1.3million in 2006, to become the smallest nation to secure passage to the World Cup finals.

Northern Ireland, who last qualified in 1982 with a population of 1.5m, Slovenia (2002, just under 2m) and Kuwait (1982, 2m) complete the top five.
