Stade Municipal, Toulouse (20.6.2016, 21:00 CET)
In the Group B of the European Championships, England are leading with 4 points followed by Wales and Slovakia with 3 and Russia with only 1 point. Tonight Russia have only one result available to continue their tournament while Wales can qualify with two results out of three.
For this match all players are available as there are no important injuries or suspensions.
Russia obtained a good draw with England in the first match (1-1) by scoring a late equalizer. After that good start, they have unexpectedly lost with Slovakia (1-2). Wales started with a win against Slovakia (2-1) and they were very close to collect points also against England (1-2) before Sturridge scored the winning goal.
For tonight I will follow the enthusiastic team lead by Gareth Bale and I predict Wales to win or draw this match. In the only final tournament they played (World Cup 1958) it took Pelé to eliminate them when Brazil defeated Wales 1-0. They have a good chance to qualify as Russia seem undeperforming in this Euro 2016. Correct score: Russia – Wales 0-1
