Euro 2016 Weekly Recap with Hyundai Motor - Week Two

By SGCM_editorial on 20 Jun 2016 in Events, Football

Attached Image In this weekly recap of the UEFA Euro 2016 Tournament brought to you by Official Sponsor Hyundai Motor, we look back at the action that took place over the past week.

In Group B action, England beat neighbours Wales 2-1 on a stoppage time winner by Daniel Sturridge. Earlier, Substitute Jamie Vardy netted in the 56th minute to cancel out Gareth Bale's 42nd minute freekick.

Iceland drew 1-1 with Portugal, as Birkir Bjarnason's emphatic volley cancelled out Nani's opener. A resolute defensive performance was cause for great celebration for Iceland, the smallest country to qualify for the European Championship. It saw a petulant Cristiano Ronaldo hit out at the Icelandic squad and lambasted their 'small mentality'. His week did not get particularly better, not helped by the fact that a missed penalty against Austria meant a second straight draw for Portugal.
