Iceland Boots England From Euro 2016 Tournament
DAVID GREENE, HOST:

About a million and a half people are officially registered to play the game in England. Iceland has about 320,000 people total. England's coach, who resigned after this loss, made $4.6 million. Iceland's co-coach is a part-time dentist. But Iceland has this guy.
