England scored an ignominious double on Monday, becoming the first country to be dumped out of Europe twice in a week and in the process losing both its prime minister and national soccer team manager.
Just days after English voters steered the United Kingdom towards a "Brexit" from the European Union, England provided another shock, crashing out of the Euro 2016 soccer competition to Iceland - the smallest country ever to appear in a major tournament.
"We embarrassed ourselves three of four days ago in the referendum, we've embarrassed ourselves now. It's a really, really sad time to be English," lamented English soccer fan Alex in the French city of Nice.
"Brexit2" quickly became a top trending topic on Twitter after Iceland, with its population of just 332,000 people, beat England's bevy of highly paid players 2-1.
"The beautiful Irony. #England knocked out of #Euro2016 by country not even in the EU! Maybe that's why they pressed the #Brexit button," joked one Twitter user.
