Sigurdsson storms into Euro 2016's quarter-finals

27th June 2016

Gylfi Sigurdsson became the fourth Swansea City player to reach the quarter-finals of Euro 2016 after Iceland caused a major upset by beating England 2-1 in their last 16 tie in Nice.
After Lukasz Fabianski (Poland), Neil Taylor and Ashley Williams (both Wales) helped their respective nations into the last eight, Sigurdsson joined them after a dramatic tie.
England had led just three minutes in after Wayne Rooney converted a penalty, but Iceland were back on level terms within two minutes as Ragnar Sigurdsson fired in from close range.
And Iceland took a shock lead when Kolbeinn Sigthorsson's shot squeezed over the line for what proved to be the winning goal.
Iceland now face hosts France in Nice on Sunday as their fairytale story continues in the tournament.
