Euro 2016: France vs Iceland previewIBTimes UK
21:55

Well that brings an end to this Euro 2016 weekend. Portugal and Wales have been joined by Germany and France in the semi-final, and two of those sides will contest the final in a week's time. We're back with both semi-finals from Lyon and Marseille on Wednesday and Thursday, but until then goodbye.

21:50

Full time: France 5-2 Iceland

As La Marseillaise rings around the Stade de France, the full time whistle goes a France march into the semi-final to face Germany on Thursday. Iceland never gave up but they were simply outclassed by Les Blues. Olivier Giroud was the chief tormentor with two goals, while Dimitri Payet, Paul Pogba and Antoine Griezmann struck the others.

21:49

Into stoppage time at the Stade de France. Entertaining game about to come to a climax.

21:45

Iceland keep going as Birkir Sævarsson beats Lloris to the ball and he cross with the goal unmanned, where Mangala clears. France out of sight, but could further goals follow?

21:42

Goal: France 5-2 Iceland (Birkir Bjarnason)

This is Iceland's first ever major tournament appearance and they are not going away without a fight. They are now beating France in this second half and it is fro another cross that France are undone as Bjarnason heads into the corner from a left-hand cross. One notable change for Iceland which has seen 37-year-old Eidur Gudjohnsen enter the fray for the final 10 minutes.

21:39

Kingsley Coman now on for France. The biggest scoreline at a European Championships is Netherlands' 6-1 win over Yugoslavia. Can that be matched?

21:31

Laurent Koscielny, who in many people's eyes has been the best player in this France team, comes off and the elusive Eliaquim Mangala is on for his first appearance of the tournament. On that subject, Samuel Umtiti has been sublime tonight. Great and encouraging debut for him.

21:30

France attacking at will as Iceland continue to throw players forward. Payet drives down the outside but his cross is turned behind for a corner.

21:22

Iceland keep coming and it keeps a fine save from Lloris to keep them out as Finnbogason connects and the France 'keeper pushes the ball away.

21:17

Goal: France 5-1 Iceland (Olivier Giroud)

The highest scoring game of the tournament as Olivier Giroud restores Frances four-goal advantage with a flicked header from Payet's free-kick, as Halldórsson comes for the ball and gets nowhere near it. Iceland's defending from set-pieces has been woeful.

21:16

Birkir Bjarnason booked for a nasty tackle on Giroud, earning himself a yellow card that if Iceland complete an unlikely comeback will see him miss the semi-final.

21:14

Goal: France 4-1 Iceland (Kolbeinn Sigthórsson)

Thirty-five minutes left and Iceland pull one back. Sigurdsson crosses from the right and Sigthórsson sticks out a toe and pokes it beyond France. Iceland have scored in every game at Euro 2016, but will it be their last?

21:06

Back underway in the second half in Paris. Can France pile on the misery?

20:52

Half time: France 4-0 Iceland

The hosts finally come to the European Championship final and this fourth quarter-final is over almost before it started. Four goals from four different goalscorers; Olivier Giroud, Paul Pogba, Dimitri Payet and Antoine Griezmann have done the damage and Iceland's hopes in this tournament have been demolished. Some semi-final in store on Thursday against world champions Germany.

20:47

Goal: France 4-0 Iceland (Antoine Griezmann)

France have been superb in this first half and they have a fourth goals their play thoroughly deserves. Giroud flicks on a Matuidi pass and release Griezmann who draws Halldórsson and chips delightfully into the net. Deschamps' side on their way to Thursday's semi-final.

20:44

Goal: France 3-0 Iceland (Dimitri Payet)

Game, set and match now and we're only at the 43-minute mark. Payet drives home from the edge of the box. Watch out Germany.

20:44

Gylfi Sidurgsson over a free-kick at last, but wide on the left-hand touchline. He plays a deep ball which Lloris doesn't come for and eventually the skipper has to palm the ball as it skids off the turf before grabbing at the second attempt.

20:41

Payet turning on the style a little, chipping the ball back to Matuidi, who leaning back skews a volley well wide of goal.

20:38

France taking the sting out of the game somewhat with some keep ball, attempt to kill any hope Iceland may have had of staging a comeback. A very impressive first 35 minutes of so this from the host nation. A third goal before half time would well and truly kill off Iceland though.

20:31

Amazing to think that England's Euro 2016 campaign could get much worse AFTER they have exited the competition, but this France display is suggesting otherwise. Iceland have been totally overwhelmed during this opening half an hour by a team who are looking increasingly like the tournament favourites they were billed.

20:27

That was the chance for Iceland. Gunnarsson's long throw is headed on and the runner is Bödvarsson, but under pressure from Umtiti he can only scoop the ball over the bar. Almost an identical goal to the equaliser against England, but unlike the Three Lions, France were alert to the threat.

20:25

France threatening to put Iceland out of sight in this first half. Goals from two of their maligned men; Giroud and Pogba have given them total control. From an Iceland point of view, two very uncharacteristic goals to give away.

20:21

Goal: France 2-0 Iceland (Paul Pogba)

Didier Deschamps' side almost out of sight inside 20 minutes. Pogba climbs highest from Griezmann's corner and crushes a header into the corner. Huge task now for Iceland.
