At last the Icelandic dream is over, with the country with a population of 332,529 bowing out to hosts France in tonight's quarter final.
Arsenal's Olivier Giroud opened the scoring in the 12th minute, with Pogba, Payet and Griezmann adding to the score sheet, as the hosts went into half-time 4-0 up.
Sigthorsson pulled one back for Iceland in the 56th minute, only for Giroud to make the score 5-1 three minutes later.
However, Bjarnason pulled back a consolation in the 84th minute, with the game ending 5-2 to France.
Here's how Twitter reacted to the result...

Well done to France who will now play Germany in their semi final.
But also congratulations to Iceland for how far they progressed in the tournament, for making England look like idiots and most of all for giving the world this...
Who's betting we'll see crowds imitating this in the Premier League next season?
