    England's likely line-up: Hart, Walker, Cahill, Smalling, Rose, Alli, Dier, Rooney, Sterling, Kane, Sturridge.

    A team of Spurs players faces a team with the population of Leicester, and everyone wants the boys in blue to win. Sound familiar?

    Most of Europe also hates us (even more) because of the whole "we're leaving your special treehouse" thing.

    I've got a 5-a-side final kicking off at the exact same time as this*, so I'm hoping for a very dull first half followed by a riveting second.






    * :facepalm: :mad: :(

    I'd love to see Iceland keep on progressing but I think this is going to be an easy ride for England. Iceland have done amazingly well, but they're going to be knackered and I don't think they can possibly ride their luck any more against nations an order of magnitude bigger than them.

    Good luck England, although I have a feeling the boys will be on the plane home tonight

    Only if England manage to make it through tonight :(





    (Yes, Northern Ireland are already out but it felt wrong taking a dig at their expense!)

    I don't see how the apparent dawn of the new fourth Reich due to Brexit can just be air brushed away because of football

    Oh FFS :D

    Anyway, fingers crossed for some better final balls and finishing alongside solid defending, as I honestly think the rest of our play has been pretty good.

    Some individual moments of brilliance wouldn't go amiss either.

    I fear a 1-0 grind that just prolongs the inevitable, but we've threatened to rack up a decent score at some point, fingers crossed it's tonight.

    I predict an easy but laboured 3-0 England victory followed by the usual WORLD BEATERS! hysterical press.

    I'm going 3-0 England. The fairytale stage of this tournament is over.

    It would be great to see Iceland progress. Unlikely but great.

    For the sake of future matches, I hope they don't.

    In some ways it was good to see a team like Greece win the euros, but in others it represented a failure of better teams to break them down and led to a series of turgid matches.

    We will get through this - just so we can go out on penalties in the next round ;)

    I'm sure England will win, so it doesn't really matter. Just always favour the underdog; me.

    planetgeli There's no future in England's dreaming

    Gloddle's just said England will go through in 90 mins.

    That's fucked that for them then.

    It would be. I want England to win the whole thing. But I'd rather lose to Iceland this round than France next!

    8den No I'm pretty sure that was 8ball...

    Its not nice kick someone when they're down, and you are our closed neighbours, and you've had a rough couple of days.

    On the other hand, you are England, so COME ON ICELAND!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
