As the games on the final match day of Group F entered into the final stages, it looked like England would be facing Portugal in the round of 16 at the Euros.
However, Iceland scored a last-minute winner in their 2-1 win over Austria to claim the second spot in the group.
Meanwhile, Portugal finished the group in the third spot.
As a result, Iceland will now be facing the Three Lions at Nice on June 27. Some of the England fans are happy with their new opponents, some not so much.
Now they have a chance to make a QF.

England have met Iceland twice before – the last occasion 12 years ago when Wayne Rooney scored twice in a 6-1 win at the Etihad Stadium.
