France simply demolished Iceland today, as Didier Deschamps men were able to get an impressive 5-2 victory without breaking too much sweat. Thus, the Frenchmen will be advancing to the semi-finals where they will meet Germany.
The match started with a clear advantage for France and pretty seen that advantage was visible on score-board. Just after 45 minutes the score was already 4-0. Nevertheless, Iceland managed to get two goals in the second-half and the result of the last quarter-final was 5-2 in the end.
However, seeing Iceland being beaten in such a dominating way rises one question – how bad was England?
Can't see why we were so critical of England. Look how difficult France are finding it playing against Iceland. 🙄— Gary Lineker (@GaryLineker) July 3, 2016
Actually, zero comfort for England. France 4 Iceland 0. Promise no more England references. France-Germany semi in Marseille.— Paul Hayward (@_PaulHayward) July 3, 2016

It's hard not to like the Iceland players despite them giving the England football team the biggest embarrassment in their history— Footy Accumulators (@FootyAccums) July 3, 2016
Don't worry Iceland. England would be at least 8-0 down by now— Dream Team (@dreamteamfc) July 3, 2016
Iceland shouldn't be embarrassed by this scoreline, England's players should be.— HLTCO (@HLTCO) July 3, 2016
