British Isles. English Scots. Gelbe Karte Island Ingason. Weiter geht es - und die Gäste tauschen ihren guten Keeper aus. Halldorsson, der Stammtorwart, ist nun dabei.
Anpfiff 2. Nur kurze Zeit hatte England mit harmlosen Isländern Probleme, die Three Lions müssten aber sogar noch höher führen - was auch Keeper Kristinsson verhinderte.
England macht das Spiel, das aber zu schlampig, um weiter zu erhöhen. Von den Isländer kommt zu wenig, die Skandinavier sind klar unterlegen.
Aus ähnlicher Position verzieht Kane erneut - es könnte schon stehen, wenn nicht höher. Kane macht weiter.
Weil sein Schuss noch leicht abgefälscht wird, verfehlt der Ball das kurze Eck. Die folgende Ecke bringt nichts ein.
In einer Umschaltbewegung kommt Foden erneut zum Schuss - wieder scheitert er mit seinem Flachschuss am stark reagierenden Kristinsson.
Maguire ist vorne dabei und findet rechts im Strafraum Foden, der mit seinem schwächeren Rechten an Kristinsson scheitert.
Die Three Lions haben das Spiel jetzt komplett im Griff. Mit einer starken Reaktion verhindert Kristinsson gegen Saka aus kurzer Distanz das Gelbe Karte England Walker England.

They'd been made different. And at the same time, they'd been made a wee bit special as well. Being so closely bordered by water meant boat-building and seafaring became a way of life.
Many millennia on from the tsunami, the British sailed the ocean waves to find new lands and build an empire. Its more recent history bristles with naval heroes, sea battles and famous explorers.
The fauna of England is similar to that of other areas in the British Isles with a wide range of vertebrate and invertebrate life in a diverse range of habitats.
National nature reserves in England are designated by Natural England as key places for wildlife and natural features in England. They were established to protect the most significant areas of habitat and of geological formations.
NNRs are managed on behalf of the nation, many by Natural England themselves, but also by non-governmental organisations, including the members of The Wildlife Trusts partnership, the National Trust , and the Royal Society for the Protection of Birds.
There are NNRs in England covering square kilometres square miles. Often they contain rare species or nationally important species of plants and animals.
England has a temperate oceanic climate in most areas, lacking extremes of cold or heat, but does have a few small areas of subarctic and warmer areas in the South West.
Towards the North of England the climate becomes colder and most of England's mountains and high hills are located here and have a major impact on the climate and thus the local fauna of the areas.
Deciduous woodlands are common across all of England and provide a great habitat for much of England's wildlife, but these give way in northern and upland areas of England to coniferous forests mainly plantations which also benefit certain forms of wildlife.
The fauna of England has to cope with varying temperatures and conditions, although not extreme they do pose potential challenges and adaptational measures.
English fauna has however had to cope with industrialisation, human population densities amongst the highest in Europe and intensive farming , but as England is a developed nation, wildlife and the countryside have entered the English mindset more and the country is very conscientious about preserving its wildlife, environment and countryside.
Grey squirrels introduced from eastern America have forced the decline of the native red squirrel due to competition. Red squirrels are now confined to upland and coniferous-forested areas of England, mainly in the north, south west and Isle of Wight.
England's climate is very suitable for lagomorphs and the country has rabbits and brown hares which were introduced in Roman times.
The Greater London Built-up Area is by far the largest urban area in England  and one of the busiest cities in the world. It is considered a global city and has a population larger than other countries in the United Kingdom besides England itself.
While many cities in England are quite large, such as Birmingham , Sheffield , Manchester, Liverpool , Leeds , Newcastle , Bradford , Nottingham , population size is not a prerequisite for city status.

Its engines power more than 30 types of commercial aircraft, and it has more 30, engines currently in service across both the civil and defence sectors.

Notably, the UK is one of the best sites in Europe for wind energy , and wind power production is its fastest growing supply.
Government commitments to reduce emissions are occurring against a backdrop of economic crisis across Europe.
UK government energy policy aims to play a key role in limiting greenhouse gas emissions , whilst meeting energy demand.
Shifting availabilities of resources and development of technologies also change the country's energy mix through changes in costs.

Around 7. After finishing compulsory education, students take GCSE examinations. Students may then opt to continue into further education for two years.
Further education colleges particularly sixth form colleges often form part of a secondary school site. A-level examinations are sat by a large number of further education students, and often form the basis of an application to university.
Some English students study an apprenticeship to learn skilled trades and pursue T-levels to progress towards skilled employment, further study or a higher apprenticeship.
Higher education students normally attend university from age 18 onwards, where they study for an academic degree. The Department for Business, Innovation and Skills is the government department responsible for higher education in England.
Students are then able to work towards a postgraduate degree, which usually takes one year, or towards a doctorate, which takes three or more years.
Many ancient standing stone monuments were erected during the prehistoric period; amongst the best known are Stonehenge , Devil's Arrows , Rudston Monolith and Castlerigg.
Perhaps the best-known example is Hadrian's Wall stretching right across northern England. Early Medieval architecture's secular buildings were simple constructions mainly using timber with thatch for roofing.
Ecclesiastical architecture ranged from a synthesis of Hiberno — Saxon monasticism ,   to Early Christian basilica and architecture characterised by pilaster-strips, blank arcading, baluster shafts and triangular headed openings.
After the Norman conquest in various Castles in England were created so law lords could uphold their authority and in the north to protect from invasion.
Throughout the Plantagenet era, an English Gothic architecture flourished, with prime examples including the medieval cathedrals such as Canterbury Cathedral , Westminster Abbey and York Minster.
Medieval architecture was completed with the 16th-century Tudor style ; the four-centred arch, now known as the Tudor arch , was a defining feature as were wattle and daub houses domestically.

The cuisine of England has, however, recently undergone a revival, which has been recognised by food critics with some good ratings in Restaurant ' s best restaurant in the world charts.
Traditional examples of English food include the Sunday roast , featuring a roasted joint usually beef, lamb , chicken or pork served with assorted vegetables, Yorkshire pudding and gravy.
Sausages are commonly eaten, either as bangers and mash or toad in the hole. Lancashire hotpot is a well-known stew originating in the northwest.
Many Anglo-Indian hybrid dishes, curries , have been created, such as chicken tikka masala and balti. Traditional English dessert dishes include apple pie or other fruit pies; spotted dick — all generally served with custard ; and, more recently, sticky toffee pudding.
Sweet pastries include scones either plain or containing dried fruit served with jam or cream, dried fruit loaves, Eccles cakes and mince pies as well as a wide range of sweet or spiced biscuits.
