Euro 2016: British neighbors to square off in key battle in Group B


06-16-2016 16:28 BJT

Euro 2016, for a look ahead at a pivotal match in Group B that sees England take on neighbours Wales later tonight. This is only the fifth meeting in 32 years between the two sides, and the Three Lions need a win after their opening draw against Russia left them third in the pool, behind Slovakia and the first place Welsh.

England trained at the team's Chantilly base yesterday morning, before travelling to Lens where the two teams will meet a few hors from now. With less then 40 kilometres separating Lens and Stade Pierre-Mauroy on the outskirts of Lille, where Russia played Slovakia on Wednesday, there is a chance that the violence which erupted between English and Russian supporters over the weekend in Marseille could be repeated here.

Wales winger Gareth Bale has also ruffled feathers by saying his teammates have more passion than their English counterparts, and that none of Roy Hodgson's players are good enough to play for the Red Dragons. But the Three Lions manager insists he has no interest in a war of words.
