Jamie Vardy probably wont get the space he wants and needs when England try to unpick Iceland on Monday.

Euro 2016 caught light as a tournament on Wednesday night, just in time for the knockout stages. And it was glorious.

It may have been a disappointing season for Norwich City players, but a few ex-Canaries are enjoying their extended campaigns, thanks to the play-offs.

By the time you read this I suspect that there will be no aspect of this depressing season that hasn’t been thoroughly dissected in one of the plethora of post mortems available, most of which make excellent reading.

Roy Hodgson has quit after England were knocked out of Euro 2016 after losing 2-1 to Iceland in their round-of-16 match in Nice.

Hodgson confirmed his assistant managers Ray Lewington and Gary Neville will also leave their roles.

Wayne Rooney put England in front with an early penalty after Raheem Sterling was fouled, only for Ragnar Sigurdsson to equalise almost immediately.

Kolbeinn Sigthorsson gave Iceland - a nation of 330,000 people - the lead with a shot Joe Hart should have saved.

England, devoid of attacking ideas, rarely threatened and Iceland will face hosts France in the quarter-finals.
