Golemo nevreme so grad vo Avstrija
A dramatic winner from Arnor Traustason in injury time sealed a 2-1 win for Iceland against Austria and a last-16 meeting with England at Euro 2016
An early opener from Jon Bodvarsson was cancelled out by Austria substitute Alessandro Schopf in the 60th minute, but a dramatic last-minute goal for Traustason on his competitive Iceland debut means they finished Group F in second place.
The country, with a population of just 330,000, will take on England on Monday night in Nice in the round of 16. They finished second behind Hungary due to having an inferior goal difference.
The loss for Austria means they are now out of Euro 2016, with Portugal finishing in third place after drawing 3-3 with Hungary.
Austria re-called defender Aleksandar Dragovic into the starting lineup after he picked up a suspension in the first game, while Iceland kept the same first XI that saw them draw 1-1 with Hungary.
The game began in a frantic fashion as in just the second minute, Iceland gave their first warning sign. Charlton forward Johann Gudmundsson took the ball on from outside the box and his effort smashed off the left-angle of the framework.
Austria set out in a 4-3-3 to begin the game and found it hard to get into a rhythm, but they were nearly gifted an early goal.
In the 12th minute, Marko Arnautovic pressured the goalkeeper, who was caught dawdling on the ball, and was able to make a tackle. However, his strike bounced off Hannes Halldorsson for a goal-kick.
Iceland hit the woodwork once again just three minutes later as Gylfi Sigurdssson’s in-swinging corner went over Austria goalkeeper Robert Almer and off the post.
Portugal are still searching for their first win of Euro 2016 after they were held by Austria in Group F.
Fernando Santos’ side drew with Iceland in their opener on Tuesday, while the Austrians were hoping to bounce back from defeat to Hungary.
It was an action-packed game, the Portuguese having over 20 shots once again but they could not find the breakthrough.
Nani hit the post with a first-half header, while Cristiano Ronaldo failed to find the back of the net with a number of chances – the Real Madrid forward missing a penalty in the second half before having a header ruled out for offside on his record-breaking 128th appearance.
A goal for the Portuguese forward would make him the first player to score at four European Championship finals – but he could be pipped to the achievement by Sweden’s Zlatan Ibrahimovic.
It was an exciting start to the match at Parc des Princes, the Austrians very nearly taking the lead after four minutes. Marcel Sabitzer lost Pepe in the box to meet Martin Harnik’s cross, heading it wide when he should really have been hitting the target.
Robert Almer was in for a busy night and he was called into his first piece of action on 12 minutes, first stopping Vieirinha’s deflected shot before making an excellent save to deny Nani in a one-on-one.
Ronaldo had a relatively quiet half and he was furious with himself after missing a great chance for Santos’ side, meeting Nani’s cross from the left, letting the ball run across his body and side-footing the ball past the near post from eight yards.
On the half hour Nani – recently linked with a return to Manchester United – headed a cross against the post, Portugal’s best chance of the half and the rebound was smashed over from 20 yards by Andre Gomes – another reported target for United and Chelsea.
Austria continued to look dangerous on the attack, Bayern Munich left-back David Alaba marauding forward and he was fouled on the edge of the area on the right-hand side. The angle for the resulting free-kick was too acute to shoot from and the resulting cross fizzed across goal, Vieirinha eventually heading it clear off the line.
As Ronaldo operated in a wider position early in the second half with Nani central, the Real Madrid legend sent a 25-yard, left-footed drive towards goal – Almer saving again. From the following corner, the 31-year-old headed on target but it was straight at the ever-present goalkeeper.
Portugal piled on the pressure after the break, Ronaldo failing to hit the target with a couple of trademark free-kicks.
The star man was then fouled in the area by Martin Hinteregger and he stepped up to take the resulting spot-kick, with the continent expecting him to set the record ahead of Man Utd-bound Ibrahimovic. But he dragged it wide from 12 yards, rattling the frame of the goal.
The Madrid man soon started celebrating as he finally headed past Almer, but this time he was denied by the flag. It was not his day and not Portugal’s, as Austria settled for a hard-earned point ahead of their final group match with Iceland
