Lampard Slams Under-Performing England – Former England international Frank Lampard has accused the current squad of underperformance after a surprise exit at Euro 2016.
England had lost 1-2 in the second round to Iceland, but Lampard believed there was still hope for the squad because of the available talent.
He told MLSsoccer.com: “Getting knocked out of any tournament in any way is bad, but the lads underperformed. You can’t dance around that. That’s what happened.
“You have to give immense credit to Iceland, the nation they are. The work rate they put in, I thought was incredible. Fair play to them on that front.
“As an England team, the quality of players we’ve got, we should be beating them. The lads will know that and it will be a very hard time for them.
“I feel for them in that way because there’s no lack of desire as an England team or individually as players who want to go out there and win a tournament desperately.
“It’s what the people are waiting for back home, but they didn’t do it.”
