Where England's stars embarrassed by Iceland at Euro 2016 are now with just three survivors from starting XI? | The Sun

ENGLAND'S humiliating Euro 2016 defeat to Iceland was one of the lowest moments in the national team's long history – and there have certainly been a few.

It all started so well when Wayne Rooney slotted in from the penalty spot.

But Ragnar Sigurdsson and Kolbeinn Sigthorsson grabbed the goals to turn the game on its head before Iceland – with a population of just 330,000 – held on for more than 70 minutes to complete the win.

The short-term ramifications were obvious: The Three Lions crashing out of another major tournament more years of pain.

First thing's first, the manager did not last long.

In fact, Roy Hodgson resigned immediately after the game before he was given the boot.

Sam Allardyce came in, beat Slovakia 1-0, then left after 67 days and was replaced by Gareth Southgate, promoted after his fine work with the Under-21s.

Joe Hart came in for plenty of criticism during the tournament in France five years ago and his career has hit a downward spiral.

Fraser Forster and Tom Heaton were England's other goalkeepers at Euro 2016.

But the trio have been all replaced, with Jordan Pickford, Sam Johnstone and Aaron Ramsdale now in contention.

The back four against Iceland was Kyle Walker, Gary Cahill, Chris Smalling and Danny Rose with Nathaniel Clyne, John Stones and Ryan Bertrand unused subs.

But only Walker and Stones are still part of the set-up.

Further forward, Hodgson went with a midfield three of Dier behind Dele Alli and Wayne Rooney.

Ex-captain Rooney retired from international football in 2017 – but did play in a friendly match the following year.

The Manchester United legend is now manager of DC United, following a stint as Derby County boss.

Alli struggled at Tottenham and has been overtaken by a number of attacking midfielders rising to prominence over the past few years. He signed for Everton last season, but is now on loan at Turkish club Besiktas.

Mason Mount, Jack Grealish and Phil Foden are the future of England's midfield, with Declan Rice also a starter.

Jordan Henderson, an unused sub against Iceland, is now a key player for club and country, although his fitness is under question.

But his Euro 2016 team-mates James Milner, Adam Lallana, Jack Wilshere and Ross Barkley have been moved on.

The attack is where things have changed the least.

Harry Kane still leads the line as he did against Iceland, while Raheem Sterling still has one of the spots on the wing.

Marcus Rashford – now a national treasure – has earned 46 caps since being a wildcard pick in 2016. He was behind Daniel Sturridge in the pecking order five years ago.

Jamie Vardy's decision to stop playing for England after the 2018 World Cup has been beneficial for Leicester.

And it's also opened up the door for Dominic Calvert-Lewin to stake a claim for a first team place, while Brentford's Ivan Toney is a recent call-up.
