Euro 2016: France v Iceland
After embarrassing England in Nice, Iceland's great European Championship adventure continues against the hosts France.
Well organised, powerful, athletic and with a hugely impressive team spirit, the debutants have taken the tournament by storm.  Didier Deschamps' French side will be wary, particularly as they are yet to hit full stride, but with the likes of Antoine Griezmann, Dimitri Payet and Paul Pogba in their ranks, they're certainly not short of match winners.  
'Les Bleus' will have the backing of the majority of the Stade de France - but Iceland's raucous supporters are sure to make themselves heard.  Mark Pougatch is joined by Manu Petit and Lee Dixon in the studio with pitchside contributions from Louis Saha and Christian Karemebu and commentary from Clive Tyldesley and Glenn Hoddle.
