Written By Rob Johnson - June 16, 2016
It’s the match we’ve been waiting for since December and it seems like it could be even more exciting that we first thought. Currently, Wales have an advantage over England before the start of the match with a win against Slovakia already under their belt, Whereas England only managed a draw against the Russians. Although The Dragons are the underdogs, we think they are more than capable of putting up a good fight against The Lions.
Wales have not qualified for a major tournament in almost sixty years, so could this be the year they not only qualify BUT make it past the group stages? Or even to a quarter or semi final? It looks like they have one famous backer, Arsene Wenger. Wenger is sure that Wales could be the team to take everyone by surprise. With Bale on side, we don’t see why this couldn’t be a possibility. The world’s most expensive footballer can surely work some magic for his national team.
England on the other hand have much more of a star studded line up. Rooney, Hart, Kane, Vardy. All the names that we constantly heard last season take centre stage in the England team. On the other hand their current squad is one of the most inexperienced they’ve had in years. Although, we are rooting for Marcus Rashford. He may be the youngster of the team, but then again he did score within three minutes of starting his first England game. His debut came after only 92 days after his Old Trafford debut. Pretty impressive if you ask us. If he gets a good amount of pitch time, we can see him making a difference to the goal tally.
Sadly, this information does make it difficult for us to decide which way we think that the game will go. Will Wales continue to make history or can England keep to tradition of being regarded as the only decent team within the UK? Wales have a lot of pressure on them, with Bale and Ramsey having to lift the team. Can two stand out players take the whole team to victory? Or will a well known (but young) line up take the victory? Wales are the outsiders but we have a sneaky feeling England will be stuck with another draw so we predict a score of 1-1.
