England's humbling Euro 2016 defeat to minnows Iceland was described by pundits as the most embarrassing for the national team in more than half a century.
Iceland has a smaller population than the greater Norwich area.
And celebrity armchair supporters were not pulling any punches on social media.
Former England star-turned TV football pundit Gary Lineker took to Twitter and called the loss the 'worst defeat in our history', saying England was 'beaten by a country with more volcanoes than professional footballers'.
He added: 'Roy Hodgson resigns as England manager. A decent and dignified man but will forever be remembered for losing to tiny Iceland.'
French ace Thierry Henry said he thought England would win the game and could deal with Iceland's long approach, while retired England striker Alan Shearer unleashed a scathing review of the national team's performance.
He said: 'England - Shocking. Pathetic. Inept. Well done Iceland, you were brilliant.'

Former Manchester United and Denmark goalkeeper Peter Schmeichel, who enjoyed a decorated career, described it simply as: 'The craziest thing I have seen in football.'
British middleweight champion boxer Chris Eubank Jnr said: 'How have we just lost to Iceland? This is like when Mike Tyson lost to Buster Douglas ... HOW!?'
Charlatans frontman Tim Burgess invoked shades of Oscar Wilde with his post: 'To leave Europe once may be regarded as a misfortune. To leave twice in a week looks like carelessness.'
Left-wing singer-songwriter Billy Bragg was typically political in his response, days after Britain voted to leave the European Union: 'How long before Labour MPs start briefing that (Jeremy) Corbyn didn't do enough to support England against Iceland tonight?'
Northern Irish comedian and television presenter Patrick Kielty also referenced the Leave campaign's de facto leader Boris Johnson with his tweet: 'Boris - probably best if you secure those borders before this England team gets home.'
Comedian and writer Dom Joly joked: 'Didn't expect us to be out of Europe that quickly- Farage delighted.'
He added: 'Does anybody else suddenly feel Welsh?'
