England suffered a woeful humiliation last night as they lost to Iceland and were eliminated from Euro 2016.

Even the most pessimistic fan could not have envisioned a more disappointing way to exit, struggling to land a shot on target in the second half when they were chasing the game, despite an array of attacking options being on the pitch.

Just one player came out of the game with their reputation intact and even enhanced, teenage wonderkid Marcus Rashford.

Rashford came on with just five minutes to go and made an immediate impact by doing what no other England player was willing to do; run at players and give Iceland problems.

He forced a late corner and was England's brightest attacking outlet in the dying stages, leading to questions why Roy Hodgson did not bring him on earlier, or use him at all in the goalless draw with Slovakia in the final group game.

His performance drew praise from former England defender Jamie Carragher, who posted on Twitter that he thought Rashford - in just five minutes - was the team's man of the match, and the only player who was not a 'disgrace'.

Rashford was not even on England's radar when 2016 began but after breaking into the Manchester United first team, it is clear he has a very bright future.

He can hold his head high after the Three Lions' exit, and there will be high hopes for him at club level in 2016/17.
