Iceland ace Kari Arnason has taken to Twitter to confirm that the quotes attributed to him about Harry Kane and Joe Hart are false.

The 33-year-old was quoted as suggesting that Hart and the Tottenham Hotspur striker were disrespectful toward Iceland in a viral image that is doing the rounds on social media.

However, Arnason has insisted that what he is alleged to have said is categorically untrue.

It came after England lost 2-1 to Iceland and bowed out of Euro 2016 at the last-16 stage in a defeat which consequently saw manager Roy Hodgson resign.

No England player on the day played well - except perhaps Marcus Rashford, who impressed despite only having four minutes to do so - and Kane was particularly poor.

The Tottenham man, in his first major tournament for England, scored 25 Premier League goals last term but he never looked like scaling those heights in France - and definitely not on Monday.

The 22-year-old looked a shadow of the Spurs hitman he was last term, while an error from Hart led to Iceland's winner.
