Juni Der Sieg von Island gegen England war viel größer. EM-Sieg Dänemark ( ) und Griechenland (). Es ist England! Es ist Island!. Juni Fußball-EM: Island besiegt England mit und steht erstmals im Viertelfinale. Juni Das Märchen geht weiter: Island schlägt England im Achtelfinale der EM. Und das Siegtor schießt ein Mann namens Sigthórsson.
England win a free-kick, which Jack Wilshere floats into the penalty area. Harry Kane steers a clean header straight into the arms of the relieved Hannes Haldorson.
Iceland substitution from a few moments ago: Elmar Bjarnason on for Kolbein Sigthorsson. I think if Iceland can hang on the rest of Europe watching on will remember this game for a very long time.
In the Iceland penalty area, a backpedalling Jamie Vardy manages to head the ball towards the edge of the six yard box. Dire stuff from England, as first Rooney gives the ball away deep inside his own half, then moments later Kyle Walker follows suit.
England need some cool heads out there, to get somebody composed on the ball. Johan Gudmondsson gets forward for Iceland and shoots on goal.
Over the bar, but not by much. Sigurdsson clearing tackle went for a corner, which was only cleared as far as Wayne Rooney.
He sends a cross high over the box and everyone in it. Jamie Vardy is put through on goal down the inside left by Dele Alli, but his first touch is poor.
He chases the ball into the penalty area, but is dispossessed by a wonderfully timed tackle by Ragnar Sigurdsson. That is astonishingly good defending.
Rooney picks up the ball on the right flank, shapes to shimmy past Gylfi Sigurdsson and runs straight into him. He does win a throw-in, from which nothing comes.
It sails well wide of the right upright. Aron Gunarsson was booked for the foul that led to the free-kick. Those who were touting Wayne Rooney as the second coming of Andres Iniesta earlier in this tournament may need to revise their opinion.
Beyond scoring the penalty from which England took their lead, his impact has been negligible. Another overhit, speculative ball from deep into the Iceland penalty area, wafted in the direction of a well marked Jamie Vardy.
Iceland goalkeeper Hannes Halldorson mops up at the back once again. Kyle Walker attempts to cross into the Iceland penalty area from the right.
Gylfi Sigurdsson and Kolbein Sigthorsson are back to block and clear the ball. A deflected Daniel Sturridge cross from the right bounces up for Dele Alli.
Man of the match: Ragnar Sigurdsson Iceland Sigurdsson is a name familiar to all England fans. If Swansea City midfielder Gylfi's namesake Ragnar was relatively unknown before this game, he will not be now.
The Krasnodar defender scored, almost made it with an audacious bicycle kick and produced a perfectly timed tackle to preserve the lead when faced with the onrushing Vardy.
Caught out There was something ironic about England, the land where the tactic is utilised at all levels, being unhinged by a long throw.
It was not as if they had not been forewarned, Bödvarsson having broken the deadlock against Austria via the same method.
From Greece to Iceland: Iceland ignore the script A lot of pre-match talk had centred on how an early England goal would make their task easier, that they might then go on to win by two or three against opponents whose only clean sheets in the last 15 games had come against Finland and Liechtenstein.
How wrong that was. England's failings in France were apparent again: No pressure "Whichever way this goes, these players are winners already," said Iceland joint-coach Heimir Hallgrimsson yesterday.
This was a no-lose situation for the Nordic side, who had "already won the hearts and minds of the Icelandic population". Their sensational campaign goes on.
Whenever they return home, they will do so as national heroes. It also houses the Consulate of France. Jersey wants to become a full member of the Commonwealth in its own right.
In , the Chief Minister and the UK Lord Chancellor signed an agreement  that established a framework for the development of the international identity of Jersey.
In January , the Chief Minister designated one of his assistant ministers as having responsibility for external relations; he is now often described as the island's 'foreign minister'.
Tax information exchange agreements TIEAs have been signed directly by the island with several countries.
This is a result of the manner of implementation of the Treaty arrangements under the Act of Accession in Jersey would have been fully within the European Communities like Gibraltar , being a European territory for whose external relations the United Kingdom was responsible, but that is limited to the Protocol 3 arrangements under article TFEU to reflect the then existing relationship with the United Kingdom.
The common customs tariff, levies and other agricultural import measures apply to trade between the island and non-Member States.
There is free movement of goods and trade between the island and Member States. EU rules on freedom of movement for workers do not apply in Jersey.
In Pereira, the ECJ held that the scope of this article included any matter governed by the Treaties in a territory where the Treaties are fully applicable.
The island is therefore within the scope of the Treaties to a limited extent, as a European Territory. To infer, as the French Ambassador and finance minister have attempted to argue, namely that the island is outside the European Union and Communities without qualification is therefore simplistic, in law false.
The German blacklisting of the island had to be hastily revoked when this was pointed out. As a result, Jersey is not part of the single market in financial services.
It is not required to implement EU Directives on such matters as movement of capital, company law or money laundering.
British citizens who have only a connection to Jersey, and not with the United Kingdom or another member state of the European Union, are not considered by the Jersey States to be European Union citizens.
However, it is not yet clear whether the citizenship rights in articles 18 and 21 TFEU are partly available to them as British Citizens, given the limited restriction of their rights under article 2 of the Protocol.
That restriction on the exercise of certain freedoms does not apply to all Community or Union rights. Those rights are primary citizenship rights, not a mere freedom.
It might not need a Treaty change to perfect this, merely a preliminary ruling from the CJEU, and supplementary implementation measures from the Council, given the effective right of entrance and residence granted to EU nationals via Article 4 of the Protocol.
Jersey residents presently do not have a right to vote in elections for the European Parliament. Jersey and Guernsey jointly opened an office in Brussels in to promote their common interests with European Union institutions.
The effect of the UK leaving the European Union is uncertain. The UK have confirmed that the Crown dependencies position will be argued in the Brexit negotiations.
The question of an independent Jersey has been discussed from time to time in the Assembly of the States of Jersey. In —08, a working group of the States of Jersey examined the options for independence, concluding that Jersey 'is equipped to face the challenges of independence' but making no recommendations.
In October , the Council of Ministers issued a "Common policy for external relations"  which noted "that it is not Government policy to seek independence from the United Kingdom, but rather to ensure that Jersey is prepared if it were in the best interests of islanders to do so".
Jersey is an island measuring The central two parishes St. Lawrence occupy the centre of the island and offer many direct routes from north to south through a number of valleys including water works valley.
The climate is temperate with mild winters and mild to warm summers. The Atlantic Ocean has a moderating effect on temperature in Jersey, as water has a much greater specific heat capacity than air and tends to heat and cool slowly throughout the year.
This has a warming influence on coastal areas in winter and a cooling influence in summer. The highest temperature recorded was By comparison, higher temperatures are found in mainland United Kingdom, which achieved The impact of the Atlantic Ocean and coastal winds ensure that Jersey is slightly cooler than the southern and central parts of England during the summer months.
Snow falls rarely in Jersey; some years will pass with no snow fall at all. The terrain consists of a plateau sloping from long sandy bays in the south to rugged cliffs in the north.
The plateau is cut by valleys running generally north-south. The following table contains the official Met Office station averages for — for Jersey, being located 7.
Thanks to specialisation in a few high-return sectors, at purchasing power parity Jersey has high economic output per capita, substantially ahead of all of the world's large developed economies.
The island is recognised as one of the leading offshore financial centres. The growth of this sector however has not been without its controversies as Jersey has been characterised by critics and detractors as a place in which the "leadership has essentially been captured by global finance, and whose members will threaten and intimidate anyone who dissents.
This competition law was based on that of other jurisdictions. Tourism supports not only hotels, but also retail and services: Farmers and growers often sell surplus food and flowers in boxes on the roadside, relying on the honesty of customers to drop the correct change into the money box and take what they want.
In the 21st century, diversification of agriculture and amendments in planning strategy have led to farm shops replacing many of the roadside stalls.
Jersey along with Guernsey has its own lottery called the Channel Islands Lottery that was launched in On 18 February , Jersey was granted Fairtrade Island status.
Until the 20th century, the States relied on indirect taxation to finance the administration of Jersey.
The Income Tax Law of introducing income tax was the first law drafted entirely in English. Because value added tax VAT has not been levied in the island, luxury goods have often been cheaper than in the UK or in France, providing an incentive for tourism from neighbouring countries.
The absence of VAT has also led to the growth of the fulfilment industry, whereby low-value luxury items, such as videos, lingerie and contact lenses are exported, avoiding VAT on arrival and thus undercutting local prices on the same products.
In , the States of Jersey announced limits on licences granted to non-resident companies trading in this way. Low-value consignment relief provided the mechanism for VAT-free imports from the Channel Islands to the UK until 1 April , at which time this policy of the UK government was binned.
Food is not exempt, unlike with VAT. The Code of Conduct Group,  at least in theory, keeps most of its documentation and discussion confidential.
The European Commission has confirmed that the Code is not a legal instrument, and therefore is not legally binding, only becoming of limited "political" authority once a unanimous report has been adopted by the Group at the end of the Presidency concerned.
Jersey is ranked as a tax haven by many organisations with the Financial Secrecy Index ranking Jersey as 16th, one rank behind the United Kingdom as of [update].
Jersey issues its own postage stamps and Jersey banknotes and coins that circulate with UK coinage, Bank of England notes, Scottish notes and Guernsey currency within the island.
Jersey currency is not legal tender outside Jersey: However, in the United Kingdom it is acceptable tender  and can be surrendered at banks within that country in exchange for Bank of England-issued currency on a like-for-like basis.
Designs on the reverse of Jersey coins:. The main currency of Jersey is the pound, although in many places the euro is accepted because of the location of the island.
Pound coins are issued, but are much less widely used than pound notes. Designs on the reverse of Jersey pound coins include historic ships built in Jersey and a series of the twelve parishes' crests.
Two pound coins are also issued, but in very small quantities. In July , the Jersey Financial Services Commission approved the establishment of the world's first regulated Bitcoin fund, at a time when the digital currency was being accepted by some local businesses.
Censuses have been undertaken in Jersey since The people of Jersey are often called Islanders or, in individual terms, Jerseyman or Jerseywoman.
Some Jersey-born people identify as British. For immigration and nationality purposes, the United Kingdom generally treats Jersey as though it were part of the UK.
Jersey is constitutionally entitled to restrict immigration  by non-Jersey residents, but control of immigration at the point of entry cannot be introduced for British, certain Commonwealth and EEA nationals without change to existing international law.
Migration policy is to move to a registration system to integrate residential and employment status. United Kingdom immigration legislation may be extended to Jersey by order in council subject to exceptions and adaptations following consultation with Jersey and with Jersey's consent.
Historical large-scale immigration was facilitated by the introduction of steamships from By , up to 5, English people , mostly half-pay officers and their families, had settled in Jersey.
By the end of the 19th century, well-to-do British families, attracted by the lack of income tax, were settling in Jersey in increasing numbers, establishing St Helier as a predominantly English-speaking town.
Seasonal work in agriculture had depended mostly on Bretons and mainland Normans from the 19th century. The growth of tourism attracted staff from the United Kingdom.
Following liberation in , agricultural workers were mostly recruited from the United Kingdom — the demands of reconstruction in mainland Normandy and Brittany employed domestic labour.
Until the s, the population had been relatively stable for decades at around 60, excluding the Occupation years. Economic growth spurred immigration and a rise in population, which is, by , about , From the s Portuguese workers arrived, mostly working initially in seasonal industries in agriculture and tourism.
Immigration has helped give aspects of Jersey a distinct urban character, particularly in and around the parish of St Helier, which contributes much to ongoing debates between development and sustainability throughout the island.
Religion in Jersey has a complex history, drawn largely from different Christian denominations. In , Jersey's first ever national survey of religion found that two fifths of Jersey people have no religion , with only small handfuls of Jersey people belonging to the non-Christian religions.
The established church is the Church of England , from under the See of Canterbury previously under the Winchester diocese. In the countryside, Methodism found its traditional stronghold.
A substantial minority of Roman Catholics can also be found in Jersey. There are two Catholic private combined primary and secondary schools: A Catholic order of Sisters has a presence in school life.
During the 20th century, British cultural influence saw an intense language shift take place and Jersey today is predominantly English-speaking.
Anglicisation of the place names increased apace with the migration of English people to the island.
Some Neolithic carvings are the earliest works of artistic character to be found in Jersey. Only fragmentary wall-paintings remain from the rich mediaeval artistic heritage, after the wholesale iconoclasm of the Calvinist Reformation of the 16th century.
The island is particularly famous for the Battle of Flowers , a carnival held annually since The island's patron saint is Saint Helier.
Channel is a commercial radio station. Bailiwick Radio broadcasts two music services, Classics and Hits, online at bailiwickradio.
Radio Youth FM is an internet radio station run by young people. Bailiwick Express is one of Jersey's digital online news sources.
Jersey has only one newspaper, the Jersey Evening Post , which is printed six days a week, and has been in publication since The traditional folk music of Jersey was common in country areas until the midth century.
It cannot be separated from the musical traditions of continental Europe, and the majority of songs and tunes that have been documented have close parallels or variants, particularly in France.
In contemporary music, Nerina Pallot has enjoyed international success. West established the first cinema in the Royal Hall in St.
Helier, which became known as West's Cinema in demolished The large Art Deco Forum Cinema was opened in — during the German occupation this was used for German propaganda films.
The Odeon Cinema was opened 2 June and, was later rebranded in the early 21st century as the Forum cinema. Its owners, however, struggled to meet tough competition from the Cineworld Cinemas group, which opened a 10 screen multiplex on the waterfront centre in St.
Helier on reclaimed land in December and the Odeon closed its doors in late The Odeon is now a listed building.
First held in , the Branchage Jersey International Film Festival  attracts filmmakers from all over the world. Seafood has traditionally been important to the cuisine of Jersey: Jersey milk being very rich, cream and butter have played a large part in insular cooking.
See Channel Island milk However, there is no indigenous tradition of cheese making, contrary to the custom of mainland Normandy, but some cheese is produced commercially.
Jersey fudge , mostly imported and made with milk from overseas Jersey cattle herds, is a popular food product with tourists.
They were originally grown using vraic as a natural fertiliser giving them their own individual taste, only a small portion of those grown in the island still use this method.
They are eaten in a variety of ways, often simply boiled and served with butter or when not as fresh fried in butter. Apples historically were an important crop.
Cider used to be an important export. After decline and near-disappearance in the late 20th century, apple production is being increased and promoted.
