    The monumental win of the Iceland squad against the English will live long in the memory, but it was no miracle - Iceland are a good team and have been for a number of years. Make no mistake this group of Icelandic players have earned the right to get to the big stage. This is their Golden Generation and they have already achieved more than anyone could have dreamed but they are not done. Even with their Golden Generation tag, none of their squad would make the French team, such has been the exceptional nature of their team play and ethic.

    This French squad while stacked with talent have yet to play a great game at the tournament. They played a fantastic last half hour against the Irish and will look to continue with that momentum. This group of players know they are the better group of players and the likes of Griezmann and Pogba have gotten progressively better as the tournament has gone along. The suspensions of Rami and Kante, will mean Deschamps is forced into changes to his lineup.

    Each team is on a fairytale run for a different reason, Iceland's is obvious but for the French players they have the opportunity to win a major tournament on home soil. They have an opportunity to earn legendary status and kickoff the biggest sporting party in their country in almost 20 years. The pressure will be squarely on the French and that may play into Iceland's wheel house, but I believe the French will prevail.

    That makes sense. If we go through today and we can't win against Germany, I guess I'd want Germany to annihilate us that way there's a chance of Deschamps being fired.

    It's not even about how bad they are, it's about how much better they could be. We have so many talented players who should have been selected and didn't. And tactically, Deschamps is completely incompetent. He's basically had to rework his tactics in each of our previous games after half time. He's just a very poor manager overall. We can still do well, and of course I hope we do, but it won't be because of Deschamps.
