Iceland (population 330.000) reached the quarter finals in the European Football (Soccer) Championships, at present ongoing in France, after making draws against Portugal and Hungary and beating Austria… and England! Their quarter final against France was played Sunday evening, July 3 ... and finally lost (5-2 to France).
Awaiting the match, a large part of the Icelandic population could be found in front of a bar, close to Moulin Rouge.
A lot of good optimistic mood!
The street had to be closed. The crowd was very kindly surveyed by representatives of the Icelandic police force, “Lögreglan”. For the comfort of the beer drinkers, some temporary conveniences had been installed.
