Lord Sugar was not impressed with Manchester City goalkeeper Joe Hart’s performance for England against Iceland at Euro 2016 on Monday.

Former Tottenham Hotspur chairman Lord Sugar has suggested on social networking site Twitter that Manchester City goalkeeper Joe Hart should be blamed for England’s exit from the 2016 European Championship.

England lost 2-1 to Iceland in the last 16 at the Allianz Riviera in Nice on Monday evening.

Manchester United forward Wayne Rooney put the Three Lions in the lead from the penalty spot as early as the fourth minute.

Ragnar Sigurdsson equalised for Iceland just two minutes later, and Kolbeinn Sigthorsson put them ahead on 18 minutes.

City goalkeeper Hart was at fault for Iceland’s second goal, as he let Sigthorsson's shot through his hand.

Former Tottenham chairman Lord Sugar was following the match, and he suggested on Twitter that the 29-year-old has a lot to answer for England’s exit from the 2016 European Championship in France.

While it cannot be denied that Hart should have done better for Iceland’s second goal, England’s exit from the Euro 2016 finals is not solely his fault.

The outfield England players on Monday evening all underperformed and looked terribly devoid of imagination or creativity.
