ALL THE GOALS: Portugal 1-1 Iceland

Birkir Bjarnason goal and Iceland’s first goal at a major tournament spoiled the party for Cristiano Ronaldo’s Portugal.

Iceland, in a major international tournament for the first time in their history, came from behind to draw 1-1 with Portugal in their opening Group F clash of Euro 2016 on Tuesday night.

 

Nani sent the Portuguese into a 31st-minute lead in Saint-Etienne, but Iceland were level early in the second period when Birkir Bjarnason fired home at the far post after Vieirinha was caught under the ball.

 

Next up for Portugal is a clash with Austria on Saturday evening, while Iceland will take on group leaders Hungary on the same day.
