The tiny island nation of just 330,000 continued has been the story of the tournament so far after creating history with almost every game they have played in.
The group win over Austria and the reaction to that victory made Benediktsson an overnight sensation.
And the stunning 2-1 win over highly-fancied England to set up a quarter-final clash with hosts France was too much for Benediktsson - who could not contain himself.
His shrieks of joy have reverberated around the football world.
We shudder to think what Benediktsson would offer up if Iceland were to stun Les Bleus at the Stade de France.
