A stoppage time counter attacking sucker punch extinguished Austria at the death as the smallest nation in EURO 2016 booked their spot in the knockout rounds with a stunning victory at the Stade de France.
Iceland 2-1 Austria
Austria missed an initial chance to equalise from Böðvarsson's goal after Dragović hit the post with his spot kick.
Alessandro Schöpf skipped past defenders to equalise at the hour mark, prompting the Austrians to push forward late on.
But Traustason would punish them at the end of a lethal counter attack as Iceland sealed a Round of 16 berth.
It sparked a period of domination from Iceland, who held the ball comfortably in possession while bringing the likes of Alaba and his Austrian compatriots to a halt. However, all that could have changed when keeper Hannes Þór Halldórsson made a howler and almost surrendered the easiest of goals for Arnautović. The keeper took long on the ball allowing the Austrian to charge him down but he couldn't get the shot off in time.

After a bulk of the half that featured mostly one way traffic from the leaders, Austria were presented an opportunity with a very soft penalty ruling. Alaba went down from a challenge in the area and it was down to Aleksandar Dragović to take it from the spot. He hit the post though with the keeper going the same way, as Iceland went into the half as the leaders.
After an hour of well-matched play, Austria would propel themselves back into the game through an equaliser by Alessandro Schöpf. Coming off the bench, he beat defenders with some quick footwork and dribbling before a low shot beat the keeper and levelled things up.
In stoppage time, they hurled all their resources up to the box but a punishing and lethal counter attack put an end to it all. They surged down the right and with just one defender there, a cross out to Traustason who slid it into goal and brought an end to the game as a last-gasp winner to put them in the Round of 16. Iceland's squad gathered on the pitch with euphoric celebrations as history was made once again.
