    Always thought Gera was really underrated at WBA. Seemed a really reliable winger.

    This is a weak group but two shock results from the group. Iceland, the underdogs of the tournament get a point against Portugal, Hungary beat Austria. Great results. It makes the group interesting now. Hope Iceland advance from this group.

    What a game that shaped up to be in the end with all due respect to Iceland we all pretty much wrote them off before the game started but that's the beauty of football.
    As we thought Portugal started the game very well and really made Iceland panic when they had the ball but that was to be expected and they deservedly got the lead and I think Iceland were glad to get in at the break only 1-0 down.

    Second half was completely different in the fact that Iceland didn't look they were panicking every time Portugal had the ball it's like they accepted they were going to be second best to the ball but they kept defending well and got their reward in the end but how bad was Portugal's defending in the lead up to the goal no defenders in sight and with all due respect they didn't have much to do throughout the game, as the commentators were saying there's something not quite right with Portugal at the moment their set pieces were poor all night, really interesting seeing top teams struggle .

    I'm not sure why everyone seemed to think Iceland would be the whipping boys of the tournament?

    Country size doesn't translate to quality of footballer, for the same reason that countries like Croatia and Uruguay produce more quality footballers than Russia despite having 140 million less people to select from.

    Iceland finished 2nd in a group in which the Netherlands failed to qualify and Turkey qualified 3rd. They are no mugs, and it is a really poor Portugal side on paper.

    Not to mention, they have Kari Arnason at CB, and it is a proven fact that teams featuring ex-Argyle Legends always do well (see Rory Fallon and New Zealand at the World Cup).

    Yeah they missed that bit haha

    Well most had Hungary to finish bottom of the group before yesterday, so I'm not sure that's true. I don't remember you predicting they'd do well against Portugal Mr. Hindsight

    How they do in qualification really doesn't mean much once they get to the tournament. Northern Ireland topped their group and look absolutely terrible.

    Yet another late goal!

    Thought Hungary deserved the goal and Iceland's defending was very commendable.

    Great 0-0 for the neutral fan. Shocked Ronaldo didn't score the penalty. Great point for Austria - Baumgartlinger was immense and MOTM for me.
