It’s humiliatio­n for Hodgson as Hart blunders

- Matthew Dunn

ENGLAND suffered their worst embarrassm­ent for 66 years, crashing out of Euro 2016 to minnows Iceland. Roy Hodgson’s men turned in a dismal, shambolic display to seal their own Brexit and leave manager Hodgson, below, facing the sack and an ignominiou­s end to his reign. Wayne Rooney had even put them in front with a fourth-minute penalty but that was wiped out by Ragnar Sigurdsson from a trademark long throw within two minutes before Kolbeinn Sigthorsso­n’s shot slithered through the hands of Joe Hart before half-time. England’s defeat against the smallest country to reach a major finals sent shockwaves round the world just as the 1-0 loss to USA had done at the 1950 World Cup.
