As you might expect, downtown Reykjavík was awash in jubilation as Iceland secured its entry into the UEFA Euro quarter finals last night.

The Icelandic capital was in full celebration mode since defeating England 2-1 last night, and RÚV has compiled a number of videos from the scene.

Atli Viðar Þorsteinsson caught an aerial view of the teeming masses:

Þórhildur Kristjánsdóttir recorded the celebrations from ground zero:

In addition, Grapevine’s own Isaac Wurmann took this video from Arnarhóll, where numerous Icelanders watched the game on the big screen:

Fireworks were still going off hours after the game had ended, and people can still be seen walking the streets this morning in their football gear.
