Austria win extends Iceland's mission impossible

St Denis, Jun 23 (IBNS): Arnor Ingvi Traustason's breakaway goal at the death was a cruel finale for Austria, as Iceland weathered a second-half battering to set up an improbable round of 16 meeting with England.

Johann Gudmundsson smacked a shot against Robert Almer's crossbar in the second minute, and the prodigiously cool-headed Icelanders were in front before too long. Kári Árnason nodded on Aron Gunnarsson's long throw from the right for Jón Dadi Bödvarsson, who threw off his marker with one touch before sliding the ball past Almer with a second.

Ari Skúlason conceded a penalty after impeding David Alaba in the box, but Aleksandar DragoviÄ pulled it onto the outside of Hannes Halldórsson’s right-hand post, possession percentages proving no comfort as Austria went into the interval a goal down.

However, Marcel Koller's men emerged an altogether more fearsome beast after a half-time rethink, substitute Alessandro Schöpf powering into the box and unhinging the Iceland defence before sweeping in an inevitable-seeming equaliser. It was an onslaught thereafter. Halldórsson saved from Schöpf, flipped an Alaba free-kick over, but insult was to follow injury – Elmar Bjarnason breaking deep into added time to set up fellow substitute Traustason's winner.

Man of the match: Kári Árnason (Iceland)
