Iceland pulled off one of the most shocking goals so far in Euro 2016, scoring in the 94th minute to defeat Austria 2–1 and guarantee a spot in the knockout rounds.

Iceland took the lead in the match in the 18th minute on a Jon Dadi Bodvarsson goal, but saw that erased by Austria in the 60th.

The match seemed to be all but over after a 30 minute stalemate, when Teddy Bjarnason found himself free on a counter and took the ball ball to the edge of Austria’s box. He then threaded a perfect pass to Arnor Traustason, who knocked the ball into the back of the net. 

After the goal, the Iceland players celebrated in front of their fans, who went wild in the stands. 

The win is the first ever for Iceland in Euro competition. They will play England in the second round.
