Iceland 0-1 England: Sterling saves The Three Lions' faces with last-minute penalty

Raheem Sterling scored a 90th-minute penalty as 10-man England earned a late Nations League win at Iceland, who also ended the game a man down.

Sterling's low shot was blocked on the line by the arm of Sverrir Ingason, who was sent off, with the Manchester City forward converting from the spot.

In a thrilling finish, Iceland themselves were given a penalty in injury-time, but Birkir Bjarnason blazed his chance to equalize way wide.

England created very little during the contest and had defender Kyle Walker sent off with 20 minutes remaining for a dangerous lunge.

Gareth Southgate's side faces Denmark in their second group game on Tuesday.
