England were dumped out of Euro 2016 by Iceland, ranked 34th in the world, at the last 16 stage on Monday evening.

England are now without a win at the knockout stages of a major tournament since 2006, and Roy Hodgson resigned immediately after the defeat in Nice following a four-year tenure. 

It was an abject display by Hodgson's side, but not the first time the Three Lions have been humiliated.

But Walter Winterbottom's side were shocked in Belo Horizonte as, despite dominating possession and hitting a post, they were beaten by Joe Gaetjens' effort, with the USA's team of amateurs, postmen and funeral directors pulling off the biggest upset in the history of the sport at the time.

Hungary were the best team in the world when they visited Wembley in late 1953 - but the fact they left England in tatters would resonate for years to come.

A first defeat on home soil to a non-British or Irish opponent came at a cost as a Ferenc Puskas-inspired Hungary showed England's approach was antiquated - with Nandor Hidegkuti helping himself to a hat-trick.

Coupled with a 7-1 reverse a year later in Budapest, the defeat issued a change in the English game.

Norway 2-1 England - 1982 World Cup qualifier, Ullevaal Stadion

Defeat in Oslo was not a disaster as England still qualified for the 1982 World Cup in Spain. But the 2-1 loss to Norway - who finished bottom of the qualifying group - is better remembered for Bjorge Lillelien's superb commentary at the full-time whistle.

"Lord Nelson! Lord Beaverbrook! Sir Winston Churchill! Sir Anthony Eden! Clement Attlee! Henry Cooper! Lady Diana! Maggie Thatcher - can you hear me, Maggie Thatcher! Your boys took one hell of a beating! Your boys took one hell of a beating," he bellowed.

Bryan Robson had given Ron Greenwood's side the lead before Tom Lund and Hallvar Thoresen turned the game in favour of the hosts.

England 0-1 Republic of Ireland - Euro 1988, Stuttgart

Knocked off their feet by Ray Houghton's early goal in Stuttgart, Bobby Robson's side got off to the worst possible start at Euro 88.

After Kenny Sansom failed to clear a cross, Houghton nodded the ball past Peter Shilton for a famous win for Jack Charlton's Ireland.

They were then beaten 3-1 against the Netherlands three days later, before a 3-1 defeat by group winners Soviet Union, meaning Robson's men went home early with three defeats.

Robson recovered to get England to the semi-final of Italia 90, but the performance in Germany was one of the down points of his tenure. 

England 2-3 Croatia - Euro 2008 qualifier, Wembley

A damp night at Wembley brought the curtain down on Steve McClaren's ill-fated reign as England coach as Croatia's victory saw the Three Lions miss out on Euro 2008.

Defeats in Croatia and Russia, as well as a damaging goalless draw at home to Macedonia, meant McClaren's side were at risk of not qualifying for the event in Austria and Switzerland.

And so it came to pass as Scott Carson fumbled Niko Kranjcar's effort and Ivica Olic made it 2-0 inside 15 minutes.

McClaren, watching on from underneath an umbrella on the touchline, saw his side rally as Frank Lampard and Peter Crouch scored - only for Mladen Petric to score a winner for Slaven Bilic's Croatia.
