Here,AFP Sports looks at the 10things we learned from the match Wayne Rooney leaves the field after England’s defeat against Iceland AP Conte coaching masterclass Written off before the tournament began Italy are more than the sum of their parts and that is in large part down to their coach Antonio Conte If he was hailed after the Azzurri beat Belgium 2-0 in their opening group match he deserves to be so again as Italy stunned the reigning champions at the Stade de France Italy asphyxiated their opponents in the first half — rather than doing all the defending they did all the attacking pressing high and thoroughly deserving their lead when it arrived through Giorgio Chiellini after 33 minutes Spain created nothing of note in the first period and could not break down the Italians in the second half as Conte’s men soaked up the pressure before Graziano Pelle clinched the win at the death Indeed only David de Gea prevented Italy from winning by a greater margin Chelsea fans will be even more excited now about the prospect of seeing Conte at the helm of their team next season BBC switch off Morata Spain finally appeared to have a centre-forward worthy of the name at this European Championship in the shape of Alvaro Morata Scorer of three goals in the group stage he nevertheless found the going far tougher up against an Italian defence comprised of players he has called his team-mates at Juventus in the last two seasons And Italy’s back three of Andrea Barzagli Leonardo Bonucci and Chiellini — aka the BBC — along with veteran goalkeeper Gianluigi Buffon ensured that Morata provided no threat during his 70 minutes on the field He moved to the left of the Spain attack in the second half after Aritz Aduriz replaced Nolito before making way for Lucas Vazquez in the closing stages Aduriz scored against Italy in a friendly in March but he was also unable to break down the sturdy Italian back door Bonucci was later named man of the match Italy have their revenge Two of Spain’s biggest results during their recent era of domination came against Italy There was the penalty shoot-out win in the quarter-finals of Euro 2008 that set Luis Aragones’ team on the way to a first major international trophy in 44 years And then there was their stunning destruction of the Azzurri in the Euro 2012 final when they won 4-0 in Kiev Italy had not beaten Spain at a major tournament since a 2-1 win in the quarter-finals of the 1994 World Cup Spain fans may best remember that game for Mauro Tassotti’s elbow on Luis Enrique that left the current Barcelona coach with a bloody nose but went unpunished This time there could be no complaints from the beaten side Ramos disaster If Sergio Ramos had not missed a penalty in Spain’s final group game against Croatia Vicente del Bosque’s side would have avoided facing Italy in the last 16 It had already been a difficult tournament for the Real Madrid stopper and Spain skipper before he endured a torrid time against the Italian attack at the Stade de France Eder and Pelle were outstanding in blue and the latter thoroughly merited his goal when it arrived at the death White kit jinx Spain don’t much enjoy playing in their white change kit As master statistician @2010MisterChip pointed out on Twitter at the beginning of the evening La Roja had lost their previous five matches at a major tournament while wearing white That run started with their 2-1 defeat to Italy at the 1994 World Cup and continued all the way up to their 2-1 loss to Croatia in Bordeaux last week that condemned them to second place in Group D and the clash with the Italians In between there were losses to Nigeria at the 1998 World Cup to Portugal at Euro 2004 and to the Netherlands at the World Cup in Brazil two years ago Here was another loss to add to the painful list England shocked by minnows Iceland Tiny Iceland beat England 2-1 in their Euro 2016 last-16 game in Nice on Monday one of the biggest ever shocks in major tournament football New chapter opens in Iceland’s fairytale Iceland’s fairytale debut major tournament just gets better and better From their first ever point to their first ever win then qualification for the knock-out stage and now they play hosts France in a "blue-on-blue" quarter-final in Paris Iceland began the game with nothing to lose and confident of rattling England But two goals in the opening 20 minutes was surely beyond the wildest dreams of any Nordic fan especially after Wayne Rooney’s fourth-minute penalty put England in front Roared on by their vociferous and disbelieving delirious fans "David" deservedly slayed "Goliath" while handing an embarrassing defeat of historic proportions to England Lars Lagerback may have a hex on England The 67-year-old joint coach of Iceland extended his personal unbeaten record against England to seven games He enjoyed plenty of success against England in nine years as Sweden coach and his pre-match comments that his familiarity with them could help Iceland pull off a monumental upset proved on the mark Iceland’s not-so-secret weapon still struck England cannot say they weren’t warned Before the game Roy Hodgson said that "you would have to be blind not to be aware" of Aron Gunnarsson’s powerful throw-ins But in a carbon copy of their first goal against Austria in the group stage the Iceland captain launched a raking missile from the sideline into the heart of the box where it was flicked on by Kari Arnason to the onrushing Ragnar Sigurdsson who scored Joe Hart Euro 2016 horror show The Manchester City goalkeeper had another night he will want to forget in a hurry Against Wales in the group stage he helped in rather than kept out Gareth Bale’s free-kick For Iceland’s first goal Ragnar Sigurdsson was quicker than Hart to pounce on Arnason’s flick-on on from Gunnarsson’s throw-in The second was even worse Iceland’s combination play across the box turned England’s defence first one way then the other but Sigthorsson’s shot didn’t carry venom Hart still let the ball squeeze under his arm England’s strikeforce again impotent Throughout England’s ultimately miserable Euro 2016 Roy Hodgson failed to settle on a potent striking unit The England coach restored Harry Kane and Raheem Sterling to a front three also featuring Daniel Sturridge but the shuffle did not provide the incision in the final third that had been lacking all tournament As against Russia and Slovakia in the group stage the front three rarely threatened to score with an England equaliser looking less likely than Iceland adding to their leads a deep divide between the quality of education in state-run schools and state-aided schools on the one hand and good private schools on the other.
