A magnificent sporting achievement for Iceland and for England, why it is almost as bad as being beaten by the USA.
If there is a single truth about Magic, it is that nothing on earth so efficiently evades it.

After that early penalty kick goal, I thought you had it locked down ...

Some responses I've seen:

"Brexit 2.0"

"Iceland's dream provokes another Brexit," - headline in Spanish newspaper La Vanguardia.

European commentators have been laughing at England's ability to crash out of Europe twice in one week, with a Spanish football pundit remarking on TV: "It's not been their week."
Make America Great Again! - Trump in 2020 ... "We're a capitalistic society. I go into business, I don't make it, I go bankrupt. They're not going to bail me out. I've been on welfare and food stamps. Did anyone help me? No." - Craig T. Nelson, actor.

Much as I've enjoyed the Brexit jokes, tommy is absolutely right that this is a magnificent achievement for Iceland.

Well done Iceland! Fantastic achievement, and a true fairy-tale story. For England: Absolute disaster. Beyond embarrassing. The coach has resigned, as he should have a long time ago. Got to find a world class manager now, and rebuild and rethink their team and tactics from scratch.

You have to love the excitement of the Icelandic announcer.

Iceland Show Their Class After Losing to France 5-2

The ways in which Iceland fought to win so hard and accepted lose so gracefully is a master class on how to be a great sportsman and on how not to be a bad loser.

Portugal 1 - 0 France is my bet.
