Remembering Steve McClaren Having All The Life Sucked Out Of Him Live On TV

As it's international week and we all need cheering up until the Premier League returns next Saturday, here's Steve McClaren's entire world ending on live television for you to enjoy, once again.

On 27 June 2016, England were knocked out of the European Championships in France at the round of stage by Iceland, a country with a population of 330,000.

In Nice, England took the lead in the 4th minute when Wayne Rooney converted from the spot after Raheem Sterling was fouled in the box and it was all looking nice and rosy.

But then literally a minute later, Iceland had levelled when England failed to deal with a Rory Delap-esque long throw into the box and Ragnar Sigurdsson reacted quickest to make the score 1-1.

Iceland notched a second in the 18th minute when a tame-looking effort from Kolbeinn Sigthorsson squirmed through the palms of Joe Hart in what was the second high-profile error England's No.1 had made in the tournament.

The Three Lions struggled to fashion any meaningful chances in the remaining 72 minutes, producing one of the worst performances the nation has ever seen and ultimately leading to Roy Hodgson's resignation.

But enough about remembering that utter shitshow, we need to focus on the fact that it's exactly one year to the day that Steve McClaren completely cursed England when proving updates on the game for Sky Sports.

Now that we've half got over the dire result, let's relive that hilarious piece of TV gold served up by 'The Wally With A Brolly'.

McClaren is no stranger to embarrassing defeats, even at international level, but he gave us an inclination of why he's not exactly had great success in English football with some of his comments during the game

Just when the 56-year old was spraying his positivity about how well England were playing and how they didn't really have anything to worry about, Iceland scored their second, with Kolbeinn Sigthorsson, the player McClaren was talking about, finding the net.

Feel free to watch the above clip as many teams as you see fit today...
