Iceland Freezes England from Euro2016


England suffered a humiliating exit from Euro 2016 monday as the Three Lions lost 2-1 to Iceland in Nice.

Skipper Wayne Rooney’s fifth-minute penalty after Raheem Sterling had been fouled gave England a dream start.

But within 83 seconds Ragnar Sigurdsson prodded the ball past Joe Hart after a long throw had caused chaos.

And Hart was at fault in the 16th minute when allowed a shot from Kolbeinn Sigþórsson to trickle over the line.
England – as they had in their previous matches – dominated possession but failed to create any clear cut chances.
Rooney and Dele Alli had long-range shots but Sigurdsson came close to extending Iceland’s lead with an overhead kick that Hart parried on 53 minutes.

Even the introduction of Jamie Vardy for Sterling midway through the second half failed to ignite England as they went down to one of the worst results in their history against the smallest country ever to qualify for the finals.
