Iceland fans celebrate in Reykjavik after team knocked England out of Euro 2016

Iceland had never qualified for a major tournament prior to the European Championship, and it is the smallest country in the tournament. That didn’t stop the island nation from toppling England, with Ragnar Sigurdsson and Kolbeinn Sigthorsson scoring after Wayne Rooney opened the scoring in the fourth minute from the penalty spot. Watch as Iceland’s fans, many of whom packed a town square in Reykjavik, go crazy during and after the historic win.

To contribute to the celebration, this 2015 video is about birds in Iceland, including snow bunting, redwing, Arctic tern, puffin and many others. It reminds me of when I was in Iceland long ago.
