English people want Iceland to beat them in the Euros because of the referendum
Britain has voted to leave the European Union, and it's fair to say some people are much happier about it than others.
Remain voters are obviously pretty angry and upset – and are showing it on social media.

And now some people have started taking it out on the England football team, who play Iceland in the last-16 of the Euros on Monday.
Loads of English fans on Twitter are now saying they hope Iceland knock their own team out of the tournament, and will even be cheering the underdogs on.
I'm supporting Iceland in the football on Monday. I clearly have more in common with them than the majority in this country. #jesuiseuropean

I am supporting Iceland as I prefer their football team and the supermarket of the same name is the only place I can afford to shop now

People are googling Icelandic chants to prepare for the game.
If twitter will allow me a moment of levity… I’m going to be supporting Iceland so fucking hard on Monday. *googlesIcleandicfootballchants

And Wales aren't safe from the anger either. Wales, who voted predominantly to leave, are playing Northern Ireland, who favoured Remain.
Also I'm now officially supporting Northern Ireland over Wales in the upcoming match. Fuck you Mini-England
