The most embarrassing defeat in English football history. This is how fans and media describe Iceland’s 2-1 score over England at the Euro Cup.
It was a catastrophic shambles that left England’s fans looking at each other after the whistle struggling to believe what they had just witnessed. Like a bad dream, some of them said.
Roy Hodgson didn’t take long to resign as England manager, but his departure was an inevitability after a truly wretched performance from what many still believe to be a squad of talented players.
Of course, this is not all just Hodgson’s fault. His coaching staff of Ray Lewington and Gary Neville are part of this embarrassment and so are all the players, who gave a dreadful performance against Iceland – who were little more than well organised and clever in their approach to the game.
