England’s disastrous summer at Euro 2016 may have more far reaching ramifications than the resignation of Roy Hodgson.

The Three Lions were knocked out of the tournament at the last 16 stage on Monday evening as they were beaten 2-1 by minnows Iceland.

It was a disastrous evening for English football, which must once again assess where things have gone wrong at a major international tournament.

The major question is how a team of such talent, full of players who were star men in the Premier League last season, managed to fall so short against inferior opposition.

The group of players that travelled to France must take the brunt of the blame as they failed to play at the high levels that they set week in, week out at club level.

When the next manager is appointed and the process of qualifying for the World Cup begins, he is likely to want to make serious changes to make his mark.

If that proves the case, then these three players may find that their England careers have come to an end.

Euro 2016 will not be a tournament that Joe Hart looks back on fondly given the manner in which he performed.

His failure to prevent the second Iceland goal was his second mistake of the summer, the other being when he was beaten by Gareth Bale’s free kick in the win over Wales.

With Fraser Forster as number two, and Jack Butland starring in the Premier League, the new manager may consider a change of goalkeeper is required for the future.

England's Gary Cahill looks dejected

When the assessment of Euro 2016 is carried out, the failure to name John Stones as a regular will be one that is widely criticised.

Many believe he is the future of English football and this tournament was the one in which he should have been blooded against international opponents.

The defence did not cover itself in glory in France and veteran Cahill is likely to be the man who will face the chop under the new manager.

England's Adam Lallana looks dejected

It may be harsh to consider Lallana will not get another England cap, but this summer showed he might be missing the quality that is needed.

There is no denying his quality, but his failure to be clinical on a regular basis makes him an easy target for those looking for complaints.

With the likes of Dele Alli and Ross Barkley vying for the attacking midfield roles, Lallana could be one that faces the end of his international career following a disappointing Euro 2016.
