England out; Hodgson leaves

England out; Hodgson leaves

The Three Lions of England have been kicked out of the Euro 2016 by Iceland, the smallest nation ever to play in the tournament, in the last 16.

It was a result few could argue with after a cumbersome, uninspiring and ragged England display at the Stade de Nice, where Iceland secured a deserved 2-1 win thanks to a ruthlessness the Three Lions could only dream of.

The greatest day in the tiny Nordic island's footballing history led to the departure of manager Roy Hodgson, with the dearth of options to replace him as demoralising as this display on the French Riviera.

Wayne Rooney's penalty gave England a dream start after four minutes, but from that point they were largely outfought, outbattled and outplayed.

RagnarSigurdsson all too easily lost Kyle Walker from AronGunnarsson's mammoth throw to level within two minutes and things got worse when aKolbeinnSigthorsson effort trickled home after Joe Hart's pathetic attempt at a save.

Meanwhile, England manager Roy Hodgson has stepped down after the 2-1 defeat to Iceland in the last 16 of Euro 2016.
