GOAL! France 1-0 Iceland (Giroud 12)
What a simple goal. Matuidi, on the halfway line, curves a fine pass over the top of the defence to Giroud, who galumphs down the inside-left channel and rattles an excellent first-time shot through Halldorsson’s legs with his left foot.
GOAL! France 2-0 Iceland (Pogba 19)

France have doubled their lead through Paul Pogba. Griezmann drilled a flat corner to the far post, and Pogba roared about Bodvarsson to thump a fine header into the net from six yards. That was a Ronaldo-like leap, aided by the fact that he had the run on the static Bodvarsson. This game is surely over.
GOAL! France 3-0 Iceland (Payet 43)
Dimitri Payet makes it three!
GOAL! France 4-0 Iceland (Griezmann 45)
Antoine Griezmann makes it four!
It was a nice goal, lots of quick passing and then a cross from the right from Sissoko that eventually came to Payet on the edge of the D. He moved it onto his left foot, away from the defender, and dragged a precise low shot into the far corner.

GOAL! France 4-1 Iceland (Sigthorsson 56)
See, even Dame Fortune has fallen for Iceland’s charms. This is a really nice consolation goal. Gylfi Sigurdsson on the right whips a brilliant curling cross into the corridor of uncertainty at the near post, where Sigthorsson stabs it first-time past Lloris.
GOAL! France 5-1 Iceland (Giroud 59)
Well that didn’t take long. Giroud restores the four-goal lead with a towering header from an excellent Payet free-kick. Halldorsson came for it and got nowhere. That’s Giroud’s last touch of the match.
GOAL! France 5-2 Iceland (Bjarnason 84)
Iceland have turned a thrashing into a minor triumph. Their spirit is so impressive. Skulason swings over an excellent deep cross from the left, and Bjarnason steers a precise header away from Lloris’s dive and into the net.
