This is world-class swearing from a cursing guru at the peak of his powers.

Unfortunately, it's difficult to argue England's squad of Euro 2016 flops don't deserve every perfectly crafted slap this angry commentator has hit them with.

As the entire world sledged England after its ruinous 2-1 loss to Iceland in the Euro 2016 round of 16, one man stood head-and-shoulders above all other critics.

BBC broadcaster and comedian Danny Baker launched one of the greatest rants ever seen in sport after England was knocked out of the tournament in typically disastrous scenes, calling to the team "a piss taking disgrace".

English stars wept on the pitch at the end of the game. They were booed off the field by their own supporters and manager Roy Hodgson resigned minutes after the game.

Baker said the torment of getting heckled by fans wasn't nearly enough punishment for the team of superstars that let their country down to fall to a country with just 100 professional players.

Hell hath no fury like an incensed English commentator wrestling with a national embarrassment and he unleashed all his scorn the moment the full time whistle sounded.

His analysis of the situation was blunt.

The rant continued, as the commentator seemed to take the riches and lifestyle enjoyed by England's professional players a personal insult before lining up former English striker Peter Crouch.

He wasn't a fan of English football great and ITV commentator Glenn Hoddle.

Then it was a free-for-all on every player and official in England's system. Nobody was safe.

There really is no greater show than English media feasting on their own.
