With the start of the Euro 2016 handball championships in Poland just two days away, we take a look back to 2010, when Iceland took bronze – its best ever result.

Hosts Austria were three points behind Iceland with just minutes to go, but managed to claw back a 37-37 scoreline in a thrilling finish (see video below).

Following this draw with Austria, Iceland went on to draw with Croatia and defeat Denmark, Russia, Norway and Poland to secure third place overall.
