Or just knows how overrated England is. Not shocked at all.
I noticed this during their first game against Russia....they seriously never took him off corners after all that? Dude was BRUTAL at them.
That was beautiful.
Iceland is dreaming.
Bring on Rashford earlier? Nah, just throw Gary Cahill up top until the 85th
Lloris >>> Hart, though.
I don't want to see anyone complain about the 24 team tourney anymore. This is amazing
And even then we were at home....
The fact that Harry Kane was the one taking kicks should be enough to fire Hodgson immediately.
I wish America gave the same respect to the game that Iceland does. Can you imagine how good we'd be if we gave the sport the infrastructure it deserves here? I"m so proud for Iceland. What a great tournament for them!
It was absolutely terrible until yesterday.
True, individually I think we're better than England, in midfield especially. But we've lacked offensive imagination in this tournament. And our D has been shaky (though not having Rami will help).
well kicking deadball is what english known for but in this game, not even for that.
Iceland man, Iceland!!!
Cried maybe a bit.
SigthÃ³rsson sounds in german like Siegtorson.
Siegtor=game winning goal
so SigthÃ³rsson is the game winning goal's son.
Greece had much more distinguished players in 2004. But Iceland has improved over the last year and was the best team of pot 5 (out of 6) in qualification. Both Albania and Northern Ireland, who also qualified, were seeded lower.
Anyway, after playing Albania and Ireland, France seems to be well-prepared for Iceland. Unlike England, they have been quite convincing already.
Roy Hodgson is the highest paid coach at the Euro 2016, possibly in international soccer.
Meanwhile, one of Iceland's coach is a dentist.
Ã‰g er Ã³hÃ³flega stoltur nÃºna!
Hodgson's gone. Good
Harry Kane taking free kicks and corners makes no sense. He is terrible at them, and anyone who has watched Tottenham should know that isn't how he is used.
Hodgson's squad selection continued to not match his tactical choices as well. Why would you possibly choose to have the team play one way, but leave all the best players for that style on the bench?
Where is Carolina's Identity? Let's hope the absence is only due to celebration.
Well that didn't take long...Hodgson has resigned!!
Another thing is that Iceland may very well treat this game today as their victory.
As for England's setup, there's so much wrong with it and it's not player production. It's not just Hodgson either, he's merely the most prominent part of it because he got to the England job through consistent failure. Their whole coaching staff is nothing but failures. Fail in the U-21 tournament every other year, never showing decent team play in it. It's a culture of failure and lack of organization.
