    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!

    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).

    Sigthórsson sounds in german like Siegtorson.

    Siegtor=game winning goal

    so Sigthórsson is the game winning goal's son. :laugh:

    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.

    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.

    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.
