Having failed to hit top form in Group B, Roy Hodgson's men will take on one of the neutrals' favourites, whose last-minute winner secured runners-up spot in Group F

England will face Iceland in the last 16 of Euro 2016.

Roy Hodgson's men were unable to secure top spot in Group B thanks to draws with Russia and Slovakia and looked all set to be punished with a tie against Cristiano Ronaldo's Portugal in the knockout stages.

But a late winner for Iceland against Austria on Wednesday lifted the tiny nation to second in Group F and lined up a game against the Three Lions, having drawn their first two matches against Portugal and Hungary.

The tie will take place in Nice on June 27 and will see the winner progress to a quarter-final match in Saint-Denis on July 3 - with hosts France one of the potential opponents.
