SCOTS football fans have apparently swamped Iceland’s kit makers with demands for the island nation’s replica shirts following England’s Euro 2016 defeat.

Minnows Iceland upset the odds to claim a 2-1 victory over the Three Lions in France on Monday.

England’s last-16 exit led to manager Roy Hodgson’s immediate resignation.

Iceland kit makers Errea say they are now working round the clock to meet demand for the shirt from all over Europe, including “thousands and thousands” of orders from Scotland.

Rosa Sembronio, head of marketing at the Italian company based near Parma, was quoted by the Daily Record as saying: “Since the win we have had many orders from all over the world for the Iceland kit.

“But by far the greatest surge of orders has come from Scotland. Glasgow and Edinburgh in particular. Their win against England was celebrated in Scotland.

“We are determined to satisfy all the requests and we now have our staff working day and night to satisfy demand.”

Export manager Fabrizio Taddei, quoted in The Times, said: “We are having huge demand and since Iceland beat England it has gone crazy.

“There have been thousands and thousands of orders from Scotland … but there is demand from all over Europe.”

Scotland failed to qualify for the tournament.
