Iceland supporters line streets of Reykjavik to welcome home heroes of Euro 2016 0

Iceland have been afforded a hero’s welcome upon their return from Euro 2016, with supporters lining the streets of Reykjavik to celebrate their side’s success.

The unfancied Nordic side went to France as the smallest nation, with a population of only 332,529, to ever compete at a European Championship.

However, they managed to emerge from a tough group to reach the knockout stages. Drawn against England, very few gave them a chance of progressing to the quarter-final.
