The knockout stage for the 2016 European Championship is set after the group stage concluded on Wednesday.

Iceland advanced to the knockout stage of its first major tournament with a 2–1 victory over Austria. Portugal and Hungary's 3–3 draw means that Iceland finished second in its group and will play England in the round of 16.

Late heroics were also reserved for Ireland, which went through as one of four third-place finishers after a 1-0 in over Italy. Robbie Brady's 85th-minute was the difference for the Irish, who have a date with host France in the first knockout round. Northern Ireland, Slovakia and Portugal were the other third-place finishers who went through, while Albania and Turkey narrowly missed out.
