#Euro 2016: Iceland defeats England - "biggest moment in sporting history"

Iceland made history on Monday when it left many Icelanders in shock and excitement, and they humiliated England in the process. They beat England 2-1, resulting in Roy Hodgson resigning as manager.

John Maytham spoke to Lárus Sigurõarson, a photographer, about the current mood in Iceland after beating England.

Sigurõarson says it is unbelievable. He likened the situation to a Disney movie.

He says people celebrated the victory until the wee hours of the morning.

Iceland has 90 professional soccer players and soccer is the most popular sport.

This is huge. It is definitely the most biggest sporting moment in Iceland's history

Lárus Sigurõarson, photographer

We look up to the English and it is kinda like big brother, small brother situation. Now it feels like small brother has beaten big brother.

Lárus Sigurõarson, photographer

Iceland will take on France in the quarter-finals on Sunday. Sigurõarson says the pressure is on France and not Iceland.

To be honest nobody expects anything from these guys but we all believe we can beat France. If we can beat England we can beat France.
