FULL-TIME. That's it. What a bizarre game. France come back from two goals down but are almost entirely inspired by substitute Kylian Mbappe; Iceland have had no form at all but really should have held on to that lead. Thanks for your company this evening.

- 

Four minutes to be added on, but we've got a few extra seconds after Mbappe is brought down in front of the technical area and everyone there is outraged.

  • Kylian Mbappé
    Goal by penaltyKylian MbappéFranceGOAL! And who else but Mbappe? He converts a spot-kick awarded for a chaotic handball, sending the goalkeeper the wrong way.

GOAL! And who else but Mbappe? He converts a spot-kick awarded for a chaotic handball, sending the goalkeeper the wrong way.

86'

GOAL! What an odd goal. Mbappe has made the difference, and creates this - his shot is saved but bounces off a statuesque defender into the net.

82'

NO GOAL! Great pass from Ndombele to Mbappe, but the flag is up on a marginal (and correct) call.

-

Fjoluson and Gíslason both join in the fray, with Saevarsson heading off.

80'

Gylfi Sigurdsson is being substituted, and he strolls off the pitch at glacier pace.

78' 

Sigurdsson takes a blow for the team as he blocks Mbappe's effort.

76' 

Payet takes a free kick, about 35 yards out, but it's along the floor and easily out of danger.

75' 

Oof. Palsson goes in studs up on Ndombele, who probably imagined his international debut happening in very different circumstances.

-

And here's Dimitri Payet too.

68' 

Pavard has been tireless this evening, albeit mostly in chasing lost causes.

66'

Paul Pogba has been quiet tonight - he's off and replaced by young Ndombele.

62' 

Gylfi Sigurdsson is still proving tricksy, but it's easier to be tricksy when your opponents just give you the ball, like Lemar does here.

Subs. Lemar is on for Thauvin, Mbappe replaces Griezmann.

GOAL! Or maybe not. Arnason rises magnificently at the near post to nod a corner kick past Lloris.

- 
54' 

CHANCE! Griezmann strikes the woodwork, and France are on the verge of an equaliser, surely?

- 
52' 

CLOSE! Thauvin's caused plenty of problems this evening, and he cuts inside here but his shot is far too high.

49' 

Iceland's first corner of the second half is headed away by Nzonzi.

49' 

Iceland are looking lively again in these opening minutes.

46' 

We're under way in the second half.

-

And Hannes Halldorsson and Albert Gudmundsson are on for Runar Alex Runarsson and Alfred Finnbogason.

-

Kurt Zouma replaces Varane at half-time.

45' 

HALF-TIME. Iceland are one up on the world champions. Let's just leave it at that for the time being.

44' 

Great save from Runarsson, tipping Nzonzi's shot over the bar.

- 
37'

SAVE! Lloris is right in there from the corner, moving quickly to his left to bat the shot away, and chaos ensues as the ball pings about before the offside flag goes up.

34' 

France are looking for an immediate response, but Runarsson is quick off his line.

  • Birkir Bjarnason
    GoalBirkir BjarnasonIcelandGOAL! Kimpembe is lying stricken on the floor after being hit by the ball, and Finnbogason heads into the box then angles it back to Bjarnason, who fires it home.

GOAL! Kimpembe is lying stricken on the floor after being hit by the ball, and Finnbogason heads into the box then angles it back to Bjarnason, who fires it home.

29' 

CLOSE! Dembele is creating chances, running at a slow defence, and Thauvin's effort bounces awkwardly and goes over the bar.

28' 

Lloris seems a bit panicky as Iceland continue to press.

26' 

Saevarsson hits a long ball forward but though the idea is good the execution has a little too much on it.

24' 

Gylfi Sigurdsson is twisting and turning on the edge of the box, trying to get his angles right for a shot, and ends up just smacking it into a crowd of people.

0 
18' 

CLOSE! Iceland are leaving Griezmann far too much space, and he has the chance to creep in and send his header from Digne's cross just wide.

15' 

Odd corner. Everyone went towards the near post, but the ball didn't, and Arnason clears.

14' 

First corner of the night as Saevarsson nips in ahead of Thauvin.

8'

The most straightforward offside decision in the history of offside, as Varane is about ten yards off.

6' 

Traustason has the first shot of the evening, working Gylfi Sigurdsson's ball on to his right foot, and Lloris gathers safely.

4' 

Dembele is trying to get his foot on the ball out on the left.

- 

And Iceland fans are already thunderclapping.

- 

France are in white, Iceland are in blue.

1' 

Kick-off!

- 

The teams head up the steps and out to the field.

- 

There is a massive flag unfurling on the pitch, reading "CHAMPIONS DU MONDE".

19:55 

Time for some tunnel handshakes as the teams assemble.
