On the 2nd day of play an interesting match is waiting for us at the group B. Parallel to his match Russia meet Slovakia on the 16th of June at 3 p.m.. So on this day also England meets his little brother Wales. The match will take place at the Stadium of the RC Lens.
Current performance of England
The team of Roy Hodgson was the team who did not drop one’s guard at the qualification for the EURO. All of the ten matches have been won this is a real masterpiece that any other nation wasn’t able to do. In addition England is happy about new forward players they have found. Harry Kane and Jamie Vardy seem to harmonize perfectly although their playing styles are nearly the same. The question now is which job captain Wayne Rooney will get now when Kane and Vardy have a position at the starting eleven. Maybe the Manchester United player will act behind these two. This already happened at the test match against Portugal. There they have won closely with a score of 1:0. The important goal hasn’t been scored by one of those three but from central defender Chris Smalling. The two matches before against Australia and Turkey also could have been won with a score of 2:1 in both matches. It’s interesting that Roy Hodgson obviously put on young players. Six players of the squad are not older than 22 years.
Current performance of Wales
At the match against England, Wales is not only meeting another part of the United Kingdom but also their neighbour country. When it comes to soccer their connection is a strong one. Some interested observer will know that the Welshman teams are part of the English League. For example: Swansea City at the Premier League and Cardiff City at the 2nd League. If you take a look at the history both teams already have met 103 times but the results speak definitely against the team of Chris Coleman. Only 14 times Wales was able to win. Beside the 21 matches that ended in a drawn they had to suffer 64 defeats and the last one in March 2011 (0:2). The last victory of Wales has been in 1984 with a score of 1:0. Nonetheless Wales has also realistic chances to reach the eighth finals due to star players like Gareth Bale or Aaron Ramsey. However the rehearsal has been clearly lost. They have lost against Sweden with a score of 0:3. At the matches before they have also not been able to win. They have lost against the Ukraine with a score of 0:1 and the match against Northern Ireland ended in a drawn with a score of 1:1.
