Group B will be decided tonight as all four teams kick off at 8pm. Here’s your preview of today’s fixtures.
Russia and Wales face off in what will be a very important game for both sides this evening. Russia have edged recent meetings between the two sides but have not looked dangerous so far in this tournament. A late header earned them a draw against England but Slovakia dominated them in the second game. Only in the final 15 minutes did Russia seem to begin to play but it was too late. Wales left it late to sneak a win against Slovakia before a late English strike saw them lose out last week. Wales want a win to get out of the group and should have enough to defeat this Russian side.
Slovakia have proven themselves as a resilient side in this tournament battling well against Wales and thoroughly dominating Russia in their second game. Marek Hamsik has been spearheading their charge and will be a handful for the English defence. England were undone by Russia late on in their opening game before they came from behind to defeat Wales 2-1 last time out. England face a tough side this evening and will have to be at their best to win tonight that will see them take top spot in Group B.
