More than 3.6 million people have signed a petition to demand England play a second match against Iceland because they didn’t win the first one.
They rushed to join the online campaign to force the Government to re-run the game, and to keep staging it until England finally won.
The surprising and embarrassing defeat against the Icelandic part-timers split the nation, especially with those in Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland wanting an England exit, while English people wanted the team to remain.
Campaigner Justin Horrocks, of Ipswich, said: “The match was clearly not played fairly. The older players let everyone down.
“And we were lied to – they said England were good and had a chance in this tournament. But that was rubbish.
“Now we are out, and no one seems to have a plan. Even the manager has resigned before any plan is in place.
“It’s an absolute disgrace.”
