FT: ENGLAND 1-2 ICELAND - THE FAIRYTALE CONTINUES !! ICELAND ARE THROUGH TO THE QUARTERFINALS OF EURO 2016! The underdogs will face France, while England will rue their absolute failure.
...
90+3' WHAT A CHANCE! Vardy glances a header wide from Strurridge's cross.
...
90+2' Iceland are defending desperately as they hand on with England piling on the pressure.
...
90' ALMOST! Rashford bamboozles the Iceland defence with a dribble into the box, and he earns a corner - which he then proceeds to take, badly. 3 minutes of injury time.
...
89' Cahill concedes a free-kick. Can Iceland put this to bed?
...
88' Bodvarssson comes off for Traustason
...
88' Harry Kane sends a free-kick from a promising position well out of play. Dear me, what were you thinking, Roy?
...
86' Wayne Rooney, England's captain, has come off for Marcus Rashford. Is his dream season about to continue?
...
85' To put this potential result in perspective, Iceland's population is as large as the city of Leicester.
...
84' ALMOST! A pass from Bjarnason sends Gunnarson, of all people running at the goal, and he twists away from Cahill to shoot at Hart from a narrow angle, but the English keeper palms the ball away.
...
83' The entirety of the world are Iceland supporters now, apart from the English of course.
...
81' Ragnar Sigurdsson with another excellent tackle to deny Jamie Vardy on the touchline. The Icelandic defender has been absolutely magnificent tonight.
...
80' 10 minutes for England to salvage their Euro 2016 hopes.
...
79' WHAT A CHANCE! Wilshere chips a peach of a ball over the Icelandic defence and finds Harry Kane, but the Spurs man heads the ball straight at Halldorsson in goal.
...
77' Wayne Rooney has misplaced more passes than any other outfield player. This has been an awful performance from the Manchester United legend so far. Can he turn it around?
...
76' Bodvarsson comes off for Elmar Bjarnason
...
75' IS THAT A PENALTY? The English fans scream for a penalty more out of hope than an actual appeal, but the referee does not even consider it.
...
72' SHOT! Saevarsson receives the ball on the right wing from a lovely diagonal ball, cuts inside and lets fly with his left foot, but his volcanic strike goes over.
...
70' WHAT A TACKLE! MAN OF THE MATCH RAGNAR SIGURDSSON produces the tackle of the tournament to deny Jamie Vardy from running clear in the box.
...
68' Jack Wilshere lets fly from about 30 yards out on the volley, but the Arsenal man's shot goes well wide. England look desperately poor here.
...
66' Harry Kane skews a shot from a free-kick wide. Can Hodgson finally stop with the madness of him taking set-pieces?
...
65' Gunnarsson goes into the book for a late foul. That means there are just two Iceland players on the pitch who are safe from suspension
...
64' For all of Wayne Rooney's qualities, the Manchester United midfielder has not made a single chance so far. Not even one.
...
63' Wilshere aims a long ball at Jamie Vardy, and the Iceland defence marshall him well. There's a combination that won't take place next season for Arsenal.
...
62' Bjarnason is penalised for a foul on Cahill for what seemed like a legitimate shoulder barge. That would have sent him clean through on goal.
...
60' SHOT! A cross from the right bounces to Dele Alli in the box, and he blasts a first time volley over.
...
60' Jamie Vardy comes on for Raheem Sterling. Will he be havin a partay?!
...
59' England try to take a leaf out of Iceland's book and send in a long throw with Kyle Walker, but the titanic Iceland defence stands firm
...
55' SAVE! Hart redeems himself with a stunning save from Sigrudsson's overhead kick from a corner. England were nearly two goals down there. 
...
...
52' England look devoid of ideas as they pass the ball ahead of the Iceland defensive block, and they're unable to pierce through. Hodgson must be tearing what's left of his hair out on the sidelines. As I write that, a long ball nearly catches Iceland out, with Dele Alli almost getting on the end of it.
...
50' England have a free-kick on the left, with Danny Rose fouled. Harry Kane's delivery is poor and is cleared, but England recycle the ball and send it for a charging Kane at the far post, but his header is tame.
...
47' Daniel Sturridge goes into the book for a reckless tackle from behind on Skulason.
...
46' Iceland get us underway in the second half, as 'GOD SAVE THE QUEEN' rings out from the English support.
...
HT: Roy Hodgson has made a change, taking off Eric Dier for Jack Wilshere. Will he make the difference?
...
HT: The teams are out on the pitch for the second half. Iceland are 45 minutes away from knocking England out of the Euros and making history!
...
Here's the pivotal moment of the game so far - Hart's howler from Sigthorsson

HT: England 1-2 Iceland. Wow. Just Wow. Having fallen behind to a Wayne Rooney, Iceland stormed back with goals from Ragnar Sigurdsson and Kolbein Sigthorsson, to take the lead going into the break.
