Iceland will face England in the knockout stage of Euro 2016 after a last-second winner against Austria delivered a 2-1 victory on a wild final day in Group F.

Arnor Traustason's goal deep into stoppage time helped Iceland pip Portugal for second place in the group.

The underdog nation went undefeated in the knockout stage, drawing twice before its victory.

Austria had the chance to tie it from the penalty spot after David Alaba drew a foul on Ari Skulason, but Aleksandar Dragovic, who was red carded in the opener, put his kick off the left post:

Austria did tie the game up on the hour mark through Alessandro Schopf, which bumped Iceland down to third place in the group:

Traustason won it four minutes into stoppage time, with a sliding finish that sent Iceland's fans and players into hysterics.
