Good evening everybody, and welcome to our coverage of this evening’s matches in Group B of Euro 2016. It’s tight at the top of this group. England lead by a single point from Wales and Slovakia and they play Slovakia in Saint Etienne with it already being reported that manager Roy Hodgson has made widespread changes from the team that squeaked a stoppage-time win against Wales last week. Well, there’s no way that can go wrong now, is there?
Wales, meanwhile, play a Russian team that can still qualify for the next round in spite of being absolutely chaotic in every respect apart from the hooliganism of their supporters. Wales may have been partly deflated by a bout of hubris prior to the England match and all has been quiet in from their squad ahead of this match. Russia, meanwhile, put on a decent show for the last ten or fifteen minutes of their defeat to Slovakia, but will this be anywhere near enough to stop their involvement in the tournament continuing to collapse in on itself?
We’ll be back shortly before kick-off with at the very least the absolute latest from the England match as well as updates concerning what’s going on elsewhere.
