3-0 Payet

Nice attack by France and good finish by Payet

Game over definitely now

And it's 3-0. Sadly think that's it for Iceland now. Would take a moment of absolute tactical mastery for Lagerback to turn this around in the second half. It's not entirely beyond someone of his capabilities but it is still one hell of a challenge and extraordinarily unlikely.

EDIT no that's not happening.

Oh goddamn, the entire half time punditry is now going to be about England, isn't it?

From what I've read of comments in this forum- the pundits talk about England no matter what, don't they? :D

This really shows how bad England were to lose to Iceland. No offence Iceland.

Hopefully that's it.

Iceland have been brilliant in this tournament and I would hate to see they getting hammered something like 7 or 8 nil.

Not taking anything from France. Playing well but i think this says more about how bad England are than how good France are. England to get beat by Iceland is just \o/ i dunno. Poor.

Brilliant finsh by Griezmann

I really ddon't hope that this will end 7-0 or so, as Iceland really doesn't deserve an exit like this

Fair play France, they've been on fire. That 4th goal was very special - lovely finish.

Iceland played their cards just right in the opening games. The problem for them is, France did their homework and got their tactics right to deal with the places where Iceland normally threaten other sides. They presented Iceland with a way of playing that they weren't ready for and simply couldn't cope with and now Lagerback has to work out a way to minimise the damage as much as possible so Iceland can still go home with a respectable result.

Quality difference showing, but have to applaud Deschamps for the way they've set up tactically as well. Not been wasting his time on boat trips for sure. :p

France to be first side to score 5 in a game this tournament?

Just one off.

France play like this against Germany it could be one of the all time classics. Fingers crossed.

England could have done this with a competent manager and a more balanced squad.

England could have done this if they actually did their homework on the Iceland way of playing and prepared their tactical approach accordingly. Instead they had no plan whatsoever and thought the result would take care of itself.

Right, take Koscielny and Giroud off now? Think they're the only ones a booking away from missing the Semis.

France movement is different level tonight in midfield compared to what we offered all tournament.

This is how it's done England.

Yeah, it's not that difficult if you have good players and a manager with tactical knowledge.

Pougatch or whoever it is said that France have two left footed CB in Koscielny and Umtiti. Ermm....Koscielny is right footed. At least do your research before you splurt about such rubbish.

I half-heard him going on about two left-footed CBs while I was in the kitchen and thought WTF are Mangala and Umtiti both playing?

Yep, just stupidness. Where do people get this knowledge from.

Ever since Martial poor first half against Albania, he seems to have been punished by the manager. Looks like the other two subs coming on is Coman and maybe Mangala.

Was about to type that my Mum had a bet on it being 4-1, I guess she could get excited for about 3 minutes! :D

France look very good. I think they will beat Germany in the semi's.

France will be well rested after this training match and have home advantage. Germany will be more tired and no hummels.

Germany has a day more to rest.

And there's no Gomez and Khedira, either.

1 day extra rest after a tough draining 120 min match. France have had a training match.

The Danish commentator just told that Eidur had his debut for the Icelandic team in.... 1996! :D

Another contender for stating the obvious from Sid. The match will be close & France might have issues with history weighing heavily on them plus Germany are hardly going to be lacking in player or tactical options.

That's it- I'm really happy that it didn't end with a total thrashing, as Iceland didn't deserve that after such a great tournament

And I wonder how badly England would've got beaten today by the French? ;):D
