It was certainly one of the most embarrassing. That was after the Three Lions got off to the start they must have dreamed of. With only four minutes played, Raheem Sterling was brought down by keeper Hannes Halldorsson and captain Wayne Rooney - equalling David Beckham's record of 115 appearances for an England outfield player - slotted home the resultant penalty. And that was as good as it got. Within seconds, Iceland were level when Ragnar Sigurdsson scored after Aron Gunnarsson's long throw-in was flicked on. Amazingly, Iceland - playing in their first major tournament - were in the lead before the 20 minute mark when keeper Joe Hart could not keep out Kolbeinn Sigthorsson's saveable shot. Despite having plenty of time to recover, England made little or no impact on the admirably well-drilled defence. Iceland thoroughly deseved their win as one of the most remarkable stories in the history of international football continued. They would now face the hosts France in the quarter-final. On a night that was anything but nice in Nice, excluding penalty shoot-outs, England were still without a win in the knock-out stages of the European Championship finals since the group format was introduced in 1980. Before this game, they had not lost a European Championship knock-out match except for penalty shoot-outs since 1968 although they had not now won a major tournament knock-out game since beating Ecuador in the 2006 World Cup. A month before the 50th anniversary of their 1966 World Cup triumph, a repeat of such a success now seemed as far away as ever. Manager Roy Hodgson resigned immediately after the game.
