Icelandic Company Expertly Trolls England Ahead Of Last 16 Clash

If we take ourselves out of the equation. The entire nation of Iceland has been the story of the Euros so far. From their amazing result against Portugal, to their fantastic victory over Austria that secured their qualification into the last 16 - Iceland have been a joy.

The tiny nation and their fans have partied almost as much as the Irish fans, and now their companies are getting in on the act.

They face England in the last 16, and a whale watching company called North Sailing has graciously offered the England a free whale watching trip - when England lose to Iceland at the weekend.

Talk about that for balls.

North Sailing's manager Guðbjartur Jónsson said the gesture should be seen as a "bandage for wounded pride:

It is only polite and a part of the Icelandic hospitality culture to offer the free tickets. The poor English players will anyways not be able to return immediately to England after the match on Monday, as 60 million English football fans will be furious when losing to a small island state with only 300,000 inhabitants.

Therefore we offer a peaceful day with whale-watching in a small town in Northern Iceland with beautiful nature and nice people. That should be the perfect compensation.

Guðbjartur Jónsson, we respect you. See you in the quarter-finals.
