Brexit II: Iceland Humiliates England In Euro 16, And We’re Afraid You Can’t Unsee This
We are a small house, but every Icelander fights with the strength of 10 mainlanders.
It's been a bad week for England, and after every defeat a leader resigns. After Brexit, David Cameron was replaced with a cat.
And after Iceland stunned England, 2-1, in the Round of 16 at the European championships today, England boss Roy Hodgson also resigned. The 68-year-old was the highest-paid coach in the tournament. Some are saying that it was England's most humiliating defeat in the national team’s 144-year history.
And when Iceland went up 2-1, this was the call by now-legendary Icelandic broadcaster Gudmundur Benediktsson, who previously made a name for himself when he went nuts over Iceland beating Austria.
Then, at the final whistle:
“You can leave Europe! You can go wherever the hell you want!”

"This is done! This is done! We are never going home! Did you see that? Amazing! I can't believe it! This is a dream. Never wake me from this amazing dream!"
Iceland now goes on to meet France in the Round of Eight.
Iceland, which has a population of about 320,000 and whose assistant coach is a part-time dentist, goes on to meet France in the Round of Eight.
And now the traditional placing of the Crying LeBron Meme on the face of the Queen. (Drum roll. All salute).
After England lost to a country the size of your school at the Euros, Twitter absolutely went in on England:https://t.co/hXjWgaDEUz
