Antoine Griezmann scored his fourth goal of Euro 2016 on Sunday night as France overcame Iceland 5-2 to progress to the semifinals. The Atlético Madrid striker got his latest strike with a beautiful dink over goalkepper Halldorsson.

Griezmann is only the second ever France player to score four or more goals at a European Championships after Michel Platini, who netted all nine of his efforts in the 1984 edition of the competition.

France make first-half history

His four goals also make him Euro 2016’s top scorer so far, while the four that Les Blues put past Iceland in the opening 45 minutes made them the first ever team to score so many in the first half of a game in the tournament’s history.
