Iceland secure historic Euro 2016 point

Birkir Bjarnason nets Iceland's first goal at a major tournament

Birkir Bjarnason netted a second-half equaliser as Iceland secured a historic 1-1 draw with Portugal in Euro 2016 Group F.

in their first ever major tournament match, Iceland played the perfect game in Saint-Etienne, soaking up Portugal pressure, keeping their shape at the back and midfield, then catching Fernando Santos' side on the counter-attack.

And a nation of 340,000 people, one in ten of whom have reportedly travelled to France for Euro 2016, will now have thoughts of progressing to the last 16 after this incredible point at the Stade Geoffroy-Guichard.

They next meet Hungary in Marseille on Saturday, before concluding their campaign against Austria at the Stade de France on Wednesday.

Portugal took the lead on 31 minutes, as Nani beat Iceland goalkeeper Hannes Thor Halldorsson at his near post from close range following good build-up work from Joao Moutinho and Andre Gomes down the right.

But Bjarnason volleyed Iceland level on 50 minutes from inside the area, with the Portugal defence AWOL following a counter attack down the right.

Cristiano Ronaldo saw a late header saved by Halldorsson, but Lars Lagerback and Heimir Hallgrimsson's side could have nicked all three points on the break but for Portugal goalkeeper Rui Patricio's save from Alfred Finnbogason drilled effort.
