Euro 2016 Group B – England in pole position to finish top

Whatever happened, there was always going to be a hefty list of talking points following the game between England and Wales.

England were hugely impressive in the first half in particular, when their supporters inside the stadium roared their approval as Russia were pressed into submission and made to look pedestrian. It made that cruel conclusion, Vasili Berezutski’s header, even more painful.
