    England has had some difficulty with teams playing behind the ball, so I'm interested to see how they approach the game. Iceland also carries some goal threat even on their rare forays forward.

    I'd almost rather be playing Portugal, at least they'd come at us. We'll have the classic England lack of ideas against defensive side game no doubt, and scrape through 1-0 or lose on penalties.

    England win but it will be their typical labored, slow build up performance, possibly 2:0 but won't be shocked if its a late winner too. Iceland at best will hope for some set piece or throw in in England's half :laugh:

    Read that the FA aren't happy that Vardy made his mind up about staying at Leicester while the Euros were still going on.

    http://www.dailystar.co.uk/sport/euro-2016/525130/England-Euro-2016-Jamie-Vardy-FA-bosses

    Hodgson ordered him to forget about Arsenal and focus on helping England succeed in France.

    Hodgson has banned agents from the team hotel in Chantilly on the outskirts of Paris and wants his stars to concentrate on the finals and nothing else.

    Vardy, 29, held talks with Hodgson to assure him he was fully focused on the job in hand.

    But less than a week later it has emerged Vardy has negotiated the bumper new deal with the Premier League champions after making a life-changing decision to snub a move to the Emirate

    Good for Vardy.

    **** Hodgson, it's Vardy's career, let him choose when he wants to.

    Hell, if not for Vardy, England probably doesn't even have another match to look forward to. :laugh:

    Did I read right that he is going to be making something along the lines of ₤120,000 a week? Or was that the Arsenal deal?

    What would you even do with that kind of money? Drive a different Bentley every day? :laugh:

    Can't believe Iceland has more votes than England.

    I like Sigthorsson. Siegtor means "game winning goal" in German. It's pronounced the same (in German).

    £120,000 per week was the Arsenal deal. I think his new Leicester deal is around £100,00 per week.
