Lee Dixon, Ian Wright and Peter Crouch didn’t exactly go easy on England after the team’s shocking 2-1 defeat to Iceland on Monday night, but it would have been even more entertaining had Danny Baker been on the panel.

The BBC broadcaster, a proper fan’s fan, took the England players to pieces in a brilliant X-rated Twitter rant after the match.

Before scrolling down any further, please be aware: the aforementioned tweets contain very bad language.

Roy Hodgson, who resigned after the match alongside coaches Ray Lewington and Gary Neville, along with the players were torn apart on social media after the full-time whistle.

This result will be remembered as one of the worst - if not the worst - defeat that England have suffered at a major international tournament.

Danny Baker's epic rant

Baker started his rant by tweeting: "Absolutely disgraceful, #England. You useless over paid, over indulged mollycoddled shits. You are beyond shame. Disgrace to working people.

"You f*****g disgrace. You f*****g disgrace. England footballers each and every one of you and your f*****g manager are a f*****g disgrace.”

He added: "You f*****g awful craven humiliating disgrace. Go on you f*****s pick up your PL wages you cheap shits. You worms. F*** you.

"Nobody NOBODY should buy a single ticket to these empty f*****s World Cup qualifiers. Why? They are a piss taking disgrace. F*** England.

"Let's get this hashtag going now and into the qualifiers. #F***ENGLAND.

"Peter Crouch talking about "the pressure" making them be useless. They're paid £150k a week you lanky ponce!

"Wayne Rooney won't be "distraught". None of them will. They'll be thinking, OK few weeks away then first game at West Ham. So f*****g what?

"I simply do not buy that footballers feel bad after game like that when they will be back on £200k in a few weeks. Its impossible.

"All you mob who turned out for England tonight are a laughing stock. A low point in the game. Ridiculous clowns. F*** off you worms."

England's dismal evening

Now that’s what you call a rant.

England’s players were completely abject against their underdog opponents for most of the match, despite the fact Hodgson’s men couldn’t have enjoyed a better start to their Euro 2016 last-16 fixture.

Wayne Rooney scored from the penalty spot in the fourth minute after Raheem Sterling was brought down inside the penalty area, but two goals in 12 minutes by Ragnar Sigurdsson and Kolbeinn Sigthorsson panicked the England players and they never recovered.

Following England’s embarrassing defeat, the Football Association are now on the lookout for a new manager.

Gareth Southgate - yes, really - is the current frontrunner to land the job.
