France 5-2 Iceland (UEFA EURO 2016 quarter-final) / 3 July 2016 Icelandic players leading superbly-choreographed fan chants became one of the iconic images of UEFA EURO 2016. The chant, which sees fans and players clap and shout in unison, starting with a long pause between claps and building to a crescendo of noise, was even adopted by other fans at the tournament. One of the most memorable renditions came after France saw off Strákarnir okkar in the last eight, and the fans - with more than eight per cent of the tiny country’s population travelling to France - joined their players in celebrating a remarkable run to the quarter-finals.
