Iceland just drawed against a strong Portuguese team proving that possession of the ball is not the what creates goals. By the end Ronaldo had a late header saved, while Iceland also went close to a winner when a shot by Alfred Finnbogason was saved. The icelandic team has their entire country behind them at the Euro2016.
Not only is close to 9% of the nation in France voting for the team but every heart in Iceland is also beating with and for the Icelandic team. Nani scored for Portugal and Birkir Bjarnason for Iceland.
Iceland managed their first point at the European Championship finals after Bjarnason equalised against Portugal, the first goal Iceland has scored at a major tournament in male football.
Great start for Iceland!
