Victory for Iceland over Les Bleus would be like something off a movie script, according to their goalkeeper, who can be found directing films when not standing between the sticks

Iceland goalkeeper Hannes Halldorsson has compared the prospect of beating France at Euro 2016 to "something that only happens in a Hollywood film".

Tournament surprise package Iceland take on the hosts in Paris on Sunday, with the minnows having stunned England to reach the quarter-finals.

And Halldorsson - no stranger to the silver screen given his former day job in the film industry - does not want to see the credits roll on Iceland's epic adventure just yet.

"I am not sure I should even toy with the notion," he told "It's just on a scale that is unfathomable.

"What would beating France mean? It would be incredible, amazing, something that only happens in a Hollywood film.

"It's OK to dream but we will have to see. For Iceland to qualify for the semis at a tournament of this size would obviously be huge."

Germany or Italy await the winner of Sunday's clash at Stade de France.
