Notes - Very rare player shirt believed to have been worn by Steinsson during a Premier League match against Wigan played at the JJB stadium on 16th March 2008. The trotters lost the bad tempered affair against their local rivals despite the Latics being reduced to ten men early on after Jason Koumas was dismissed for a late challenge on Gary Cahill. Future Bolton striker Emile Heskey then put the home side ahead before half time with a cool volleyed finish. Despite mounting pressure from the Whites after the break and several penalty appeals and near misses Wigan held on for the three points. Steinsson played the full 90 minutes contributing to his total of 16 appearances for the side as they narrowly avoided relegation from the Premier League following the departure of Sam Allardyce. The Icelander made close to 140 appearances for Bolton during his time at the Reebok stadium after signing from Dutch side AZ Alkmaar in January 2008. His hard working and professional approach didn't go unnoticed by Iceland coach Ólafur Jóhannesson as Steinsson was named as captain of the national  side in 2009.  and become the country's most capped outfield player while on the domestic scene he left a legacy of 840 appearances, with only David James and Ryan Giggs playing in more Premier League matches. Speed became Wales manager in 2010 and started to lay the foundations which would see fruition only after his very sad and untimely death as The Dragons ended their long wait for a major international tournament appearance at Euro 2016
