Before Monday, you probably only knew Iceland as the country that produced Sigur Rós, the weird ambient band that your stoner college roommate was into for like a semester and a half.

But now the tiny volcanic island is has pulled off one of the greatest upsets in sports history, knocking out mighty England in the European Championship round of 16.

Sadly Iceland fell to France in the quarterfinals, but the team still received a hero’s welcome upon returning home.
