All Goals of England against Iceland National teams
- Title : All Goals of England against Iceland National teams
The Three Lions have appropriately said goodbye to this year's Nations League. Above all, a convincing Phil Foden made it 4-0 against Iceland.
The Three Lions, who could not qualify for the final tournament before the game, started dominantly against Icelandic guests, for whom it was still a matter of not ending the group with zero points after six games.
After a dead ball, England take the lead
Mount booked the first chance to shoot (4th), in many approaches the English passing game in the opposing third was convincing. After a phase in which Iceland held up aggressively and well for almost ten minutes, the European Championship co-favorite took the lead - after a dormant ball: Foden gave in from the left in the middle, where Rice headed into the far corner (20th).
Iceland's goalkeeper Kristinsson prevented the double strike with a strong reflex against Saka (22nd min.), Before he had to reach behind him for the second time: Under pressure in his own penalty area, the guests were unable to resolve the situation, Mount punished this with a placed left-footed shot (24th min.) .). Kane (28th, 37th, 38th) and Foden (30th, 35th) missed a number of other chances - in part this was due to Kristinsson in a brilliant mood.
Shortly after the break, a dismissal decided the game prematurely: Saevarsson, who had already been warned, kept Saka tactically and saw yellow-red (54th). As a result, England played almost exclusively and was still very lenient with its guests. Iceland had its only chance after a corner when captain Arnason headed past the short corner (60th).
Sancho altruistic, double pack Foden
After a few changes in the final phase, Gareth Southgate's team turned it up again: Substitute Sancho unselfishly put down for Foden, who made it 3-0 with a low shot (80th) - and shortly afterwards with an even more low shot, fourth : 0 final score (84th).
