Now the quarters:

Poland/Portugal 2-1
Belgium/Wales 3-1
Germany/Italy 4-1
Iceland/France 2-0

That should just about do it. Go Iceland.

England is very much a pop and a flop powerhouse, but truth to be said Iceland isn't nearly as bad as many people had thought. Specially ESPN broadcasters who know nothing about football need to learn that names don't win games.

You are so right. Team effort wins games.

Hope Portugal, Wales, Italy and Iceland advance to the semi-finals but i have a feeling it will be Belgium, Germany and France instead.

Leicester and Iceland have made 2016 a wonderful year for football.

Next round I'll take Poland and Italy advancing on penalties, Belgium dispatching Wales with ease 2-0 and Iceland will be stifled by France 1-0 with referee assistance.

I think anyone can beat anyone at this point. Pretty all teams have been very inconsistent, I foresee this tournament to have the same kind of finish as Denmark 1992 and Greece 2004.

Agree with you on Leicester and Iceland. Great year for both of them. Can Iceland make it to the semis? I sure hope so. For the other three my money is on Poland, Belgium and Germany.

England should be embarrassed. Losing to Iceland.

Poor English mates, as if they didn't have enough in their plate already. Also like I've said before Iceland finished their qualification group in ahead of Turkey and Holland, excuse-o-me. If you were to take a look at their squad you would see that they have some very decent players. When they drew with Portugal many people scoffed, and now they kicked out England , they must be doing something right. IMO they are not as terrible as the name "Iceland" sounds, though they play an obviously limited type of game. From now on the surprise effect might not work in their favor as much as they are on the spot now. Also let's hope referees keep it clean and do not give the struggling host nation a "hand", as it has already happened on a few occasions before.

Is it me, or has England done better with a foreign manager? The had top 15 finishes at the 2002, 2006 and 2010 World Cups when they had Eriksson (for 2002 and 2006) and Capello (for 2010). They failed to qualify for Euro 2008 when McClaren was their manager.
