Inspiring Iceland
Is the sky the limit for Iceland? England were clearly wary of being on the receiving end of a giant-killing and their supporters made as much plain from the outset with a rousing rendition of their signature chant, "Don't take me home".

Despite this early setback, the Icelanders were not about to go down without a fight and showcased all the pluck and camaraderie that have characterised their French adventure. As if it had been written in the stars, Ragnar Sigurdsson reignited their dreams practically right from the restart, leaving the Three Lions with it all to do again just two minutes after they put their noses in front. 12 minutes later, top fifa coin sites it went from bad to worse for the pre-match favourites when Kolbeinn Sigthorsson sent the underdogs ahead. Finding themselves trailing, to widespread amazement, the English struggled to summon a response, bossing possession but failing to make it count, while Iceland matched them stroke for stroke and threatened to score a third.

It was assumed that England would come out all guns blazing after the interval, but the much-anticipated rally never materialised. Harry Kane remained off the boil, Jack Wilshere was unable to make an impact and Jamie Vardy was similarly ineffectual after replacing Raheem Sterling, who was not at the races once again. The minutes ticked by and an equaliser began to appear increasingly unlikely for Roy Hodgson's charges, who in the event simply froze. The Icelandic David had slain the English Goliath, who looked like anything but. On this evidence, hosts France should expect a formidable challenge in the quarters.
