Iceland sink Young Lions

Published Add your comment

A below-strength England Under-21 side were beaten 2-1 by Iceland in Preston as they continued their build-up to June's European Championships.

Stuart Pearce's side were looking for another confidence boost after thrashing Denmark 4-0 last Thursday and they took the lead 13 minutes in through Nathan Delfouneso.

But Arnor Smarason equalised three minutes before half-time and West Ham's Holmar Orn Eyjolfsson headed the winner in the 67th minute at Deepdale.
