    France erupts for four goals in the first half - the last two after the 40". France has been a class above. The game has been very comfortable for them. Goals by Giroud 12", Pogba 20", Payet 42", Greizmann 45".

    At this point, it's just a matter of who sits for France in the second half. Giroud has a yellow already. Maybe prudent to sit him to be sure he'll play in the semifinals vs. Germany.

    FRA 4-0 ICE. HT.

    No quit in Iceland. They score at 56".

    First non-PK goal France have conceded this tournament.

    Giroud reclaims four-goal lead for France 59" Great header at the end of an even better FK from Payet.

    FRA 5-1 ICE 59".

    Giroud off to great applause. Gignac takes his place. 60". Makes sense to insure he's available against Germany.

    Iceland with a dangerous header off a corner forces a great save at 63". Earn a throw in. France gets away with a hand ball.

    Koscielny off. Mangala on. 72"

    Wouldn't be surprised to see another goal. Iceland pressing forward to score again and are ripe for a counter break.

    This beauty from one of the announcers when revisiting Ronaldo's comments about Iceland and refusal to trade jerseys after the match . . . "I think at this point Ronaldo will only trade jerseys with himself."

    Iceland go home with heads high and hearts won.
    France move on to the semifinals and a date with Germany.

    Thanks for the updates huja Well done France and all credit to Iceland. More than everybody expected. Germany will play France without Hummels ( 2nd yellow ) & Khedira ( injured ). Gomez's Euro adventure is already over with a torn hamstring. Well wishes Mario. Definitely a blow. Still few days to go. See you later
