England - Wales

Wales: Hennessey, Chester Williams, Davies, Gunter, Taylor, Allen, Ramsey, Ledley, Bale, Robson-Kanu


The first match between England and Wales at a major tournament is expected with great interest, and the Dragons took care of tension to increase after his speeches over the past mostly by superstar Gareth Bale.

Real Madrid striker hit of patriotism and with it will surely motivates more Three Lions, who will want to make up for the missed victory against Russia in the first match of the competition.

People Roy Hodgson, however, played well and that's what makes them optimistic before the clash with neighbors, who in turn won the start and will be confident in this match.

Both teams, however, showed variations in protection, suggesting that the attackers will have a strong potential to mark. For English the main question of course will be stopping Gareth Bale, who with his speed can bring them a lot of problems.

Furthermore, players Hodgson are obliged to seek victory, while Wales will take a wait in an effort to strike, which help him to get a positive result.


Aaron Ramsey joined Bale claiming the Welsh were the better team and pointed out that displayed the passion and spirit will be key to the outcome of the clash.

Then in 8 matches between the two teams, however, England dominated by winning 6 matches and lost only one, what happened back in 1984 already and year. Moreover, those fights Wales scored only 2 goals.

Realistically England are favorites because of the potential that they have. Roy Hodgson is unlikely to make any changes to the composition, again Wayne Rooney is expected to be in the midfield, and will most likely perform static situations instead of Harry Kane. Daniel Sturridge is an option for a stronger attack, and possibly a change of formation with a diamond in midfield.

On the other hand Chris Coleman will likely start again with three central defenders, which may mean that the English will press on either flank. Anyway clash promises to be extremely interesting, but the chances of England winning are better.
