    Hodgson Quits After England loses To Iceland.

    The England manager falls on his sword after his side's humiliating exit from Euro 2016 at the hands of the Iceland.

    Wayne Rooney put England a goal ahead with a penalty after just four minutes but Ragnar Sigurdsson equalised for Iceland almost immediately.

    Joe Hart was at fault when Kolbeinn Sigthorsson scored the second goal for Iceland - a nation of 330,000 people playing in their first European Championships.

    Is this the lowest point that English football have descended to ?

    What should be done to try to alleviate this terrible insult ?

    Some people have been comparing that defeat with Scotland and the Faroe Isles.

    I don't think that they will crow about 2016 as much as they did over 1966.

    Maybe it is time that England stopped and looked at itself.

    I think that the England football team can be great again once they have started from scratch and built up a team that has a new manager and a real desire to win.
