Ian Poulter, Lee Westwood and Shane Lowry were among a host of players who reacted to England’s surprise Euro 2016 exit at the hands of Iceland last night.


With many pundits expecting England to win comfortably in the Euro 2016 last-16 tie, all looked to be going to plan as Wayne Rooney put them ahead with an early penalty. Two quickfire goals from Iceland changed all of that and England were unable to find the net again, eventually losing 2-1.

Cue a major reaction on Twitter from golfers and caddies around the world, with the English players in particular showing their shock.

Ian Poulter was the most vocal as he watched the game. Starting with this when Iceland took the lead.
