Iceland had qualified for the tournament and then made the knock-out rounds, so they were clearly a very good side. England had done the same, but had already shown that they were less than the sum of their parts. They also had a goalkeeper who had previously blundered against Wales.
It was hardly the 1950 match against the USA.
I'd forgotten that they beat us - once - a million years ago. Was our entire team drunk or something?
Congratulations to Italy: best team in the world.
