England crashed out of this summer’s European Championships after an embarrassing 2-1 loss to Iceland in the round of 16.
The majority of the players involved have since been given time off from their clubs before the start of the 2016-17 Premier League season.
Fans and pundits expected the Three Lions to ease through the fixture and already had their eyes set on France in the quarter-final.
