Euro 2016: England v Iceland all the build-up live

Jamie Clark, Sports Editor | June 27, 2016

19:59 Enjoy the match and goodbye! That’s all for me. Try to enjoy watching England. Until next time, I wish you well.

Thanks for spending your Monday and money with Coral!

19:54 Last chance to bet:

Kick-off now just moments away, so here’s you final opportunity to have a wager on England v Iceland at Euro 2016!

19:48 Nice view:

It really is a lovely place where tonight’s game is held.

19:45 Spotted in Nice:

There’s even satire in the stadium!

19:41 Have your say…

Great expectations, not just a great novel, eh Sarah?

19:37 Have your say…

It might be, Ryan, but the Three Lions last won a knockout phase game at a major tournament 10 years ago!

19:30 More political satire:

This particular Sterling may yet prove his worth, Paul.

19:24 Anything to shoes between them?

I’ll get my coat, in half an hour or so, but nice shoes, Hatty!

19:20 Shearer says… Can England get through to the next round? The thoughts of Coral football ambassador Alan Shearer:

19:15 Ah, Mr Preview, how are you? Kick-off fast approaching in Nice, so what are the best bets between England and Iceland? Check out our experts’ tips in Coral’s match preview.

19:11 Peter Reid predictions:

We’ve got an enhanced matchday special of 3/1 on England winning 2-0 and 3-0 in 90 minutes! You can stake up to £20 on this Euro 2016 price boost bet!

19:07 Have your say…

You don’t really think that, do you, Andy?

19:01 Shearer says… We asked Coral football ambassador Alan about Euro 2016 so far:

18:53 Result! Italy 2-0 Spain.

Chiellini and Pelle send La Roja home!

18:51 GOAL! Italy seal victory through Pelle on the break in stoppage time. Buffon made a vital save from Pique moments earlier. Champions Spain are heading out!

18:50 Satirical stuff!

Like what you did there, Jake. British politics in turmoil, but let’s all have a laugh at their expense!

18:48 Team news! Iceland XI:

Gylfi Sigurdsson starts, but Eidur Gudjohnsen among subs! Premier League stars past and present have different roles for Iceland!

18:44 Talk of the Toon!

Hope that’s not a harbinger of things to come, but England are pretty poor at penalty shoot-outs!

18:36 Great save! This time Buffon denying Inieista on the volley. The veteran Azzurri stopper also tested by Pique. Less than 15 minutes for Italy to hold on!

18:35 Team news!

Confirmation what many of you feared, Sterling starts for England!

18:32 Viva Las Vegas!

Sin City is another place where you need to bet responsibly, Alex!

18:26 Ragnar’s ready!

Flattered that England are part of the biggest game in your country’s history!

18:21 It’s coming home…

Honour-bound to share this football anthem. Only difference is it’s 50 years of hurt now, not 30!

18:16 Great save!

Azzurri counter-attack through Eder, but De Gea saves one-on-one. Great game on the outskirts of Paris, let’s hope England v Iceland as Euro 2016’s first knockout round comes to a close is as compelling later!

18:14 Diamond geyser!

Looks very picturesque, Keith!

18:10 Nice Ticket!

That’s what the hottest ticket in town in Nice tonight looks like!

18:07 Back underway in St-Denis. Italy 1-0 Spain still.

18:04 Have your say…

Maybe so, Ben (see 15:35 post).

18:01 Max and Paddy’s Road to Nowhere:

Bold prediction there, Paddy!

17:57 Half-time price boost:

Head tennis anyone? Appropriate with Wimbledon underway!

17:50 Great save just before half-time! Giaccherini sees fingertips of De Gea thwart him again. From Black Cats flop to Azzurri threat!

17:48 Don’t get shirty!

Think there’s a big future in comedy for you, Iain!

17:44 New customer offer!

Get a 10/1 price boost on an England win if you’re a new Coral punter with full details in an article that explains all!

17:38 Have your say…

You and me both, Amy, ahead of England v Iceland.

17:36 GOAL! Azzurri lead. Chiellini smuggles in the rebound from a free-kick De Gea could only parry. As it stands, holders Spain are going out!

17:31 Beardwatch

Like Bill Oddie, but with beards!

17:24 Have your say…

Bit negative there, Naomi. Maybe Sterling shall silence doubters!

17:18 Shearer says… More from Alan on who would make his England starting XI tonight:

17:14 Great save again! De Gea tips Emanuele Giaccherini’s audacious overhead kick onto the post.

Sunderland will actually get some decent money for him if he carries on like this!

17:12 Great save!

David de Gea denies Marco Parolo, getting a plunging palm on a headed free-kick.

17:10 Troublemaker!

Olly Murs in fine fettle ahead of tonight’s big game between England and Iceland at Euro 2016.

17:05 Have your say…

A tempting punt there, Joe. As play is underway in the St-Denis suburb of Paris, we’ll keep you posted on the score between Spain and Italy!

17:02 Kick-off in the Stade de France!

16:59 In fine voice!

Got to love the Azzurri’s passion!

16:54 Woah bad betty…

Coral are proud to be part of the responsible betting partnership. When the fun stops, stop!

16:51 Have your say…

Nice to see some positivity there, George!

16:47 Shearer says…

16:42 Have your say…

Sure thing, Amy. With Premier League stars past and present Gylfi Sigurdsson and Eidur Gudjohnsen

16:35 Stat attack!

No pressure on the Azzurri, then!

16:30 Could Rooney retire?

We pride ourselves on being prepared for every eventuality here at Coral, and special odds of 66/1 says England skipper Wayne Rooney will miss a penalty in a potential shoot-out against Iceland and, like Argentina counterpart Lionel Messi, retire from international duty!

16:26 Penalty punt? Just one of the many enhanced matchday specials available for Euro 2016 today:

16:22 Need a drink in Nice?

These fine fellows look like they can sort you out!

16:17 More Iceland puns warning….

Let’s hope none of the England players freeze in front of goal like the tasty morsels above!

16:12 What a trip!

16:08 Don’t go, Mr Preview! Our tipsters look at the best bets from the tie of the Euro 2016 first knockout round between Italy and Spain.

16:03 Team news!

A full strength Spanish side!

Azzurri not too shabby either.

15:59 Stick with us!

One rival I don’t have to worry about… No hint of rioting so far based on this:

15:56 Price boost plug! Pretty tasty and one way to hedge your bets:

15:50 Ice to see you…

England hit tonight’s Euro 2016 opponents for six last time they met, but can they find top gear again>?

15:45 Have your say…

That is approaching satire…

15:35 Out and about!

Tracksuit bottoms on the French Riviera?! A fashion faux pas, Roy, nes pas?

15:30 Roxy Music…

Yes, there’s a plethora of sport on today, Roxy!

15:25 Shearer says… More from Coral football ambassador Alan, and it’s the lack of Three Lions cutting edge that he has a view on:

15:21 Sterling splits opinion… Rumours of Raheem Sterling being restored to the England XI have gone one of two ways:

And the not so positive outlook:

Now, forgive me if this sounds sensationalist… but nothing has split this great nation like this since the Referendum! Too soon?

15:16 Have your say…

Preaching to the converted, Daniel. But the Coral crew just aren’t Roy Hodgson!

15:12 Supermarket Sweep! Don’t you just long for Dale Winton…

Better than Kerry Katona or Peter Andre any day… Mysterious Girl, that’s why mums go to Iceland!

15:08 “If you let her go, that’ll be the end of it…”

Here’s hoping England don’t get Taken by Iceland tonight…

15:02 Horrible history…

Six years, still hurts doesn’t it? At least we got goal-line technology out of it!

14:55 Here me roar…

Not just the Lannister words with that Game Of Thrones season finale on UK TV’s Sky Atlantic tonight, but some patriotism in real life:

14:49 Guillem in a van… Yes, it’s so-called informed Spanish journalist Guillem Ballague en route to the Stade de France:

What’s the French for can I have a lift please?

14:41 Shearer says… And as we’re on the subject of Italy v Spain from Euro 2016, here’s what Coral football ambassador Alan Shearer thinks ahead of their showdown:

14:33 Italy better last time out…

A 1-1 draw in friendly action more like it from the Azzurri. You can get 5/1 on that scoreline in 90 minutes this time.

14:25 Stat attack! But if this is anything to go by, then Spain’s reign should continue:

14:20 What’s Italian for revenge? Answers on a postcard, or the modern equivalent which is a Tweet.

Some context before I go any further, though. Spain battered the Azzurri 4-0 in the Euro 2012 final. Repeat scoreline tonight? A cool 60/1!

14:15 J’adore le score… Bet £10 on the correct scoreline between England and Iceland, and we’ll give you a £5 in-play bet:

14:10 Scorers at the double! The first of many enhanced odds plugs for your delectation. Morata and Kane an incredible 8/1 to both find the net in 90 minutes:

14:05 What’s the Story, Morning Glory? First up, it’s over to our very own Simon Clare for the Coral Morning Report on a huge day of Euros action:
