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.
