🇽🇪England 1⃣ - 2⃣ Iceland🇮🇸
The unexpected😱 has happened. It is a headline result❗ Iceland has defeated😳 the mighty England.
Roy Hodgson👔 introduced Wilshere for Dier in the 2⃣nd half to add more power to the attack👊. His influence was felt from the opening stages of the 2⃣nd half itself. Ten minutes🕐 into the 2⃣ half Iceland almost scored the 3⃣rd goal⚽ when a corner kick produced havoc in the England box. In the end, Hart👋 blocked Ragnar Sigurdsson's overhead kick from ten yards. At the hour mark, Sterling was replaced by Leicester striker Vardy. Iceland continued to sit back and defend but they created chances often though England had the ball for most of the time👌. Sigurdsson made a brilliant👍 tackle on Vardy inside the box to deny❌ him a chance. Within minutes, on the other half, Saevarsson's blistering 💨shot flew over the crossbar. In the 80', Wilshere's inch-perfect👏 pass found Kane⭐, but the Tottenham striker headed it straight at the Iceland goalkeeper. With 6⃣ minutes to go, Gunnarsson missed😞 out a clear chance when he was left with just Wilshere and goalkeeper Hart in the box following an Iceland counter💨 attack. Surprisingly😯 in the 86', Rooney🌟 was substituted with Rashford by Hodgson. Rashford made his presence feel quickly but even the Manchester United♦ starlet was unable to put an end to Iceland's fairytale✨.
Iceland will face hosts🙏 France in the quarters.
England: W. Rooney 4'
Iceland: R. Sigurdsson 6', K. Sigthorsson 18'
