England’s shock 2-1 defeat to Iceland at Euro 2016 prompted some wild celebrations in France – none more so than from the Wales squad.

Shortly after England crashed out of the tournament a video began circulating on social media showing Wales well and truly losing their sh*t at the team hotel.

Prior to the group showdown between England and Wales, Gareth Bale accused his opponents of lacking spirit and passion. England won that tie but their opponents are having the last laugh as the only Home Nation remaining in Euro 2016.

Based on the pixelated footage that’s emerged, Wales struggled to hide their delight at England’s misery.

“You know what f**k Wales i was hoping they done well but after that i hope they get f**ked,” wrote one furious Twitter user Roachy.

The sentiment was widely-shared, with many fans surprised to see the last Brits standing celebrating an England defeat with such enthusiasm.

One fan compared it to the scenes of Leicester City players finding out they’d just won the Premier League, while another said it was odd to witness Wales players celebrating the misery of many of their club mates.

One thing is now certain: the majority of England will now be gunning for Belgium to beat Wales in Friday’s quarter final tie.
