Here are all of England's best bits from Euro 2016


It may seem like there weren't many highlights from England's Euro 2016 campaign - and that's because there weren't.

Nevertheless, we've scratched around the recesses of our brains to pick a few out...

1. Vasili Berezutski equalises for Russia

For a horrible moment, there almost seemed like a reason for England fans to be optimistic. Hodgson's team actually played well in the first half and totally deserved it when Eric Dier's free-kick put them ahead. Luckily Berezutski levelled late on to remind everyone what being an England fan is all about. Without that we might have got our hopes up and the whole thing would have been so much worse.

2. Joe Hart does a swear

It's always great to see goalkeeper Hart getting overexcited in the tunnel and swearing on live TV, if only because that constitutes a rare moment when he's not weak-wristedly letting a mediocre shot into the back of the net. We'll certainly miss that when Fraser Forster or Jack Butland inevitably replaces him.

3. Raheem Sterling is substituted

A moment that will play on loop for years to come, when Sterling was withdrawn after an hour against Iceland it drew pretty much the loudest cheer of the night from England fans. One of very few moments of sweet satisfaction the Three Lions faithful had to enjoy. Unforgettable.

4. Roy Hodgson resigns

Nobody ever likes to see someone lose their job - except when that person has just presided over the worst England performance in living memory. This was a moment to savour. Off you pop, Roy. Now we're just waiting for some of the players to follow suit.

5. Free whale-watching trips

After Iceland beat England, a tour company from the island nation offered England players and supporters free tickets to go whale watching. Great news if you're a fan of marine mammals, and even if you're not - because if this tournament has proved anything it's that watching whales is a lot more fun than watching England.
