Argentina legend, Diego Maradona has criticised England, following their shocking exit at the Euro 2016. The Argentina great described the three lions as “short on talent and steel” after running around “aimlessly” in the loss to Iceland.
England crashed out of the showpiece event, after surrendering an early lead, to lose 2-1 to the minnows of Iceland.
The unexpected defeat triggered the resignation of Roy Hodgson, as past players criticised the team.
And Maradona, who scored the iconic ‘Hand of God’ goal to eliminate England from the 1986 World Cup, has joined the list of critics.
“It was an upset that didn’t look like one,” Maradona wrote in his column for the Times of India.
“Iceland were fairly in command and made their illustrious rivals run around aimlessly, without purpose or venom.
“England continues to be an over-hyped side, short on talent and steel.
“Although I’d be surprised if Iceland get past France, the tiny nation has been the story of the tournament so far.”
