BBC commentator Danny Baker pulled no punches as he launched a scathing attack on England's flops following their dismal Euro 2016 exit.

England suffered the ultimate humiliation when they bowed out 2-1 against minnows Iceland and the team were lambasted for their performance which led to the resignation of manager Roy Hodgson.

BBC Radio 5 commentator Baker is known for his up front approach and he launched a foul-mouthed tirade against the English players in the aftermath of, possibly, their worst defeat ever.


"Absolutely disgraceful, #England. You useless over paid, over indulged mollycoddled shits. You are beyond shame. Disgrace to working people.

"You f*****g disgrace. You f*****g  disgrace. England footballers each and every one of you and your f*****g  manager are a f*****g  disgrace.

"You f*****g awful craven humiliating disgrace. Go on you f*****s pick up your PL wages you cheap shits. You worms. F*** you.

"Nobody NOBODY should buy a single ticket to these empty f*****s World Cup qualifiers. Why? They are a piss taking disgrace. F*** England.

"Let's get this hashtag going now and into the qualifiers. #F***ENGLAND.

"Peter Crouch talking about "the pressure" making them be useless. They're paid £150k a week you lanky ponce!

"Wayne Rooney won't be "distraught". None of them will. They'll be thinking, OK few weeks away then first game at West Ham. So f*****g what?

"I simply do not buy that footballers feel bad after game like that when they will be back on £200k in a few weeks. Its impossible.

"All you mob who turned out for England tonight are a laughing stock. A low point in the game. Ridiculous clowns. F*** off you worms."

Others were quick to react to the shock result.

Former England and Liverpool defender Jamie Carragher (@Carra23) wrote: "We'll be better against the top teams! Jesus.....any pressure at the back we concede, against a team with 300k living there!"

Good Morning Britain presenter Piers Morgan (@piersmorgan) had a cheeky dig: "Don't worry, if we lose I have a petition ready to play the game again."

Leicester goalkeeper Kasper Schmeichel (@kschmeichel1) was amazed with a perceived lack of effort and commitment from the England players. He tweeted: "Come on England!!! You're behind!! Do something! Run around!! Tackle someone!!! Anything!!!"

He added: "Fair play to Iceland!!! 100 per cent fully deserved!!"

Former England international Rodney Marsh (@RodneyMarsh10) added: "England completely devoid of improvisation - Looking slow, labored & knackered"

Match of the Day presenter and former England striker Gary Lineker (@GaryLineker) wrote: "The worst defeat in our history. England beaten by a country with more volcanoes than professional footballers. Well played Iceland."

Joey Barton (@Joey7Barton) tweeted: "Hodgson will get the bullet 100 per cent. But Lewington and Gary Neville have also got to be binned. Think the Neville myth has exploded anyway!"

Anthony Ogogo (@AnthonyOgogo), bronze medallist at the 2012 Olympics, added: "Worst moment as an England fan in my life. At least all the times before we showed bottle, passion, desire. That was embarrassing."
