    Icelandic commentator Gudmundur Benediktsson lost it seeing his country's national team scoring a winning goal in the injury time and squeezing out the right to qualify from the group stage at Euro-2016.

    Here are a couple of other angles.

    In a thrilling match, Jon Bodvarsson gave Iceland the lead in the 18th minute. In the second half, Alessandro Schopf tied the score displaying fancy dribbling skills. Finally, in the 94th minute team Iceland conducted a lightning counter-attack and Arnor Ingvi Traustasson scored the second goal.

    Surprisingly for many, Iceland managed to take the second place in its Group F leaving Portugal behind and will play with England in the 1/8.
