Twitter in meltdown after colossal goal for Iceland, England embarrassed

On perhaps a night that could prove to be the biggest banana skin in English football history, the defensive frailty that has proved to be such a sewing motif for the Three Lions over the past few years once again cost them.

After skipper Wayne Rooney put the strong favourites ahead with a fine penalty, relative minnows Iceland shocked the world and pulled goal a back.

Even more amazingly, they marched into the lead.

Clearly, there’s still a lot still to play for this evening.

However, the mere fact the Icelandic men were able to notch, and then steal the lead, against their more illustrious opposition has sent social media into a frenzy.

Perhaps indicative of English football as a whole, the superstar names and numerous title winners in the ranks could do little as Cardiff City midfielder Aron Gunnarsson fired home from point blank range.

Manchester City ‘keeper Joe Hart then dropped his SECOND clanger of the tournament, allowing a relatively weak Icelandic shot to somehow find its way into the goal.

Twitter, as you can well imagine, has been merciless.
