Perhaps the story of the week is Iceland's expectation-defying run to the quarter-finals, which saw them dispatch England 2-1 along the way. The victory marked a historic moment, as Iceland progresses the farthest they have ever gone in a major tournament. Goals from Ragnar Sigurdsson and Kolbeinn Sigthorsson cancelled out Wayne Rooney's fourth minute penalty. For England, the loss marked yet another humiliating and disappointing exit from a major tournament.

In another underdog victory, Wales shocked Belgium 3-1 to progress into the semi-finals. Ashley Williams' goal cancelled out Radja Nainggolen's 13th minute opener. Hal Robson-Kanu scored a stunning goal after eluding three Belgium defenders in the penalty box with a slick Cruyff turn, and Sam Vokes also got onto the score sheet to cap off Wales' remarkable day.

Italy and Germany also played out a 1-1 draw, with the match going to a bizarre round of penalties. Players from both teams had some horrible misses, perhaps none more so than Italy's Zaza, who skied his penalty after a head-scratching and elaborate jogging-on-the-spot run up.

The seventh generation Hyundai Sonata, launched in 2015, builds on the incredible success of its predecessor, offering a more refined look through the new Fluidic Sculpture 2.0 design language. The new model also has a stiffer body structure, better ride quality, reduced noise, vibration and harshness, as well as advanced safety and convenience features, raising the bar for the mid-size sedan segment.
