    Iceland - a magnificent place, but who knew they were also a magnific.....er, slightly better than mediocre football team. Good to see the underdogs get up.

    Their national anthem is outstanding too:

    Well done Iceland. You were less grim than England.

    Have we had a quote from David Gower's wife yet - isn't she Icelandic?

    The commentators were just as surprised, there was a moment in the second half where Iceland had the ball in the left back/left centre half zone about 40 yards from their goal and Tyldsley goes 'Iceland just can't get out at the moment', they knock 4 or 5 passes together comfortably then move the ball to the right back who's in yards of space to launch an attack at England's left flank. It was as if Tyldsley just expected them to boot the ba whatever way they were facing.

    It was half an hour of calling them afraid, and talking about why Souness wouldn't have let that happen if he was playing.

    Souness talking about that sort of thing against Iceland is a bit crass after the Siggi Jonsson tackle.

    Thank you Iceland for saving everyone from rubbish England matches previews and watching Vardy on the bench again.

    Apart from the fact that they're not very good.

    Not a lot to say that hasn't been said already really. England had the best part of an entire game to turn things around, but seemed to be bereft of any real ideas and just spent the whole time passing the ball sideways. Not only a crap performance but a crap spectacle. Well done Iceland, fully deserved it.

    The English press have fairly woken up to Hodgson this morning. Real 'emperor has no clothes' moment. Irish press have been sticking the boot in for years.

    Probably was given leeway because of his nationality. The tide started to turn on Sven as soon as things began to go slightly awry. What England wouldn't give now for a manager of 2001 Sven's calibre/reputation.
