They were well organised, and you're right, they were much more adventurous than one might have expected. But what I mean is, after the second goal went in, England didn't present them with any problems, their crosses were massively overhit even from a dead ball situation (as an aside, I don't understand why there are crap corners, shouldn't a pro be able to deliver it where they want every time - in other sports where there are things like that they can learn the muscle actions and just always do it - even rugby kickers are better at kicking a dead ball than footballers - and I don't just mean England here) - right out of ply often. They could't put passes together so they could't get through them that way and they lacked confidence to dribble - take people on. Though apparently, according to stats England had dribbled more than any other team in the group stages, how they work that out I'm not sure.I think you're being hard on Iceland. they showed real grit and determination, were well drilled and organised and continued to chase the game even when winning.

Manager can change things for sure - but the problem here isn't that. It doesn't matter who you put in charge of England I don't think that they would do better. I think that Hodgson had a point when he said that nothing in the previous performances had caused him to believe that they would play as badly as that. If your players can't hit a two yard pass what tactics will save them? I think it's to do with the expectation, pressure from the fans and papers who will turn on them the second they fuck up. Well, of course it's that - I'm stating the obvious. They need to look at the psychology of players in England - I think they work more on that in Germany say. Not in the national team but from the start.I disagree and point to the impact Eddie Jones has had on the national rugby team
I honestly believe I could've managed the England team to a better result this euros am I right
