France 1-0 Albania

  • Antoine Griezmann 90

Antoine Griezmann, who’s barely touched the ball since coming on as a substitute, looks to have sealed the win for France. Wave after wave of pressure culminates in Rami sending a cross into the Albanian box, where the unmarked Griezmann nods in from close range.

Romania 1-1 Switzerland

  • Admir Mehmedi 56

Switzerland are level after a stunning strike from Admir Mehmedi. A corner is delivered from the left and is partially cleared but the ball sits up perfectly for Mehmedi who lashes in a left-foot strike from 12 yeards that gave Ciprian Tătăruşanu no chance.

Goal!

Romania 1-0 Switzerland

  • Bogdan Stancu 18 (pen)

Switzerland have done most of the early running, but their good work is undone through a needless foul by Stephan Lichtsteiner. The Swiss captain tugs at the shirt of Alex Chipciu and the referee points straight to the spot. Up steps Bogdan Stancu, just as he did in the opening match of the tournament against Frnce, to send Yann Sommer the wrong way.

Russia 0-2 Slovakia

  • Marek Hamsik 44

Marek Hamsik, who’s been the best player on the pitch by a distance, has doubled Slovakia’s lead. Russia are caught napping when Slovakia take a short corner allowing Hamsik to cut inside a defender before unleasing a wonderful shot which goes in off the far post. It’s a stunning strike.

Russia 0-1 Slovakia

  • Vladimir Weiss 32

Slovakia go ahead against the run of play. A wonderful pass byMarek Hamsik reaches Vladimir Weiss on the left, who cuts inside 2 defenders and fires past Igor Akinfeev into the far corner of the net. The defenders sold themselves too easily, but that should not detract from the quality of Hamsik’s pass, nor the efficiency of the Weiss finish.

Day 5 recap

Portugal 1 Iceland 1

Iceland’s Birkir Bjarnason celebrates after scoring his side’s equaliser against Portugal.

The story of the day came in Saint-Etienne where Portugal were held to a 1-1 draw by an Iceland team playing at their first major finals. Up to 30,000 Icelanders were in the Stade Geoffrey-Guichard to to wtiness this small piece of history being made.

There was a big surprise in the day’s other game as well as Austria, tipped by some as dark horses for the tournament, came a cropper against Hungary. It was a memorable win for Hungary, who had waited 30 years to appear at a major tournament and, as you can see from the image below, it meant an awful lot to goalscorer Adam Szalai and the thousands of travelling supporters.
