In one of the biggest upsets of Euro 2016 so far, Albania defeated Romania 1-0 in Group A in Lyon on Sunday.

Armando Sadiku's first-half header, his country's first ever goal at a major tournament, sealed the historic victory.

Gianni De Biasi's men held on in the second half amid heavy Romania pressure, and subsequently gave themselves a genuine chance of qualifying for the knockout stages.

Albania have three points, which may well be enough to see them through as one of the best third-placed teams, should other results go their way over the matchdays to come.
