As well as an illustrious domestic career he was also an important member of the Iceland national side between 1996 and 2016 winning 88 caps, scoring 26 goals. He made his last appearance in the 2016 European Championships at the age of 37.

Upon retiring from playing Gudjohnsen has gone into coaching and started working towards completing his coaching badges whilst working in his current role as assistant manager of the Iceland under-21’s side.

His three boys have all followed their father into football, one is a professional playing in Italy and the other two are playing within the Real Madrid youth academy system.
