Iceland opened its Euro 2016 campaign Tuesday against Portugal and the mighty Cristiano Ronaldo.

With apopulation of some 330,000, Iceland is the least populous country at the continental soccer championship, where it’s making its first major tournament appearance.

But Iceland hung on for a 1-1 draw with Ronaldo and Portugal making the tiny nation’s biggest fan very happy in the process.

Hafr Jlus Bjrnsson is officially Iceland’s strongest man but you better know him as “The Mountain,” Cersei Lannister’s champion fighter on Game of Thrones.

He posted this photo of himself celebrating as time ran out on Iceland’s upset draw.
