Wales Cruise to First, Disappointing Draw for England

- Wales Cruise to First, Disappointing Draw for England - 

Wales recorded an emphatic 3-0 victory over Russia and finished first in Group B. England failed to get all three points against Slovakia and with a goalless draw finished 2nd in Group B. Slovakia claimed 3rd place on 4 points and are very likely to advance as one of the top 4 3rd placed teams.

Slovakia 0 - 0 England

England and Slovakia played to a goalless in the final matchday of Group B. Although England dominated the game by creating many chances and controlling possession, Slovakia’s back line “wall” proved to be tough enough to hold the clean sheet. Slovakia sat back in their own half as a draw would secure them 3rd place in the group with 4 points. On the other hand, England needed the win to claim top stop, but their dominance failed to provide a goal and the English finished behind Wales in group B. The “Three Lions” will now face the runner-up from Group F which could result in a difficult opponent, such as Portugal. Slovakia’s 4 points will almost assure them a place in the final 16 as one of the top four 3rd place teams.

Wales put on a tremendous performance against Russia and recorded an emphatic 3-0 victory. Wales made their mark on the game early on with Ramsey’s goal in the 11th minute. By the 20 minute mark, Wales doubled their lead and were well on their way to their second victory of the group stages. Russia attempted to play an offensive game, but Wales’ responded with counter-attacks that resulted in goals. Bale added his third goal in three games and Wales cruised to a 3-0 victory over the Russians. Their win, along with England’s draw, sent Wales to top spot in Group B and a theoretically easier opponent in the Knockout Stages. Russia ended a disappointing tournament with a heavy loss as they finished last in Group B with 1 point.
