A wonderful cause

Get in!

That’s why you should pick your in-form players. Vardy pokes home. Great call from the officials not to flag for offside as the ball came of a Wales head. 1-1.

GOAL! England 1 Wales 1


Positive response

England have started the second half brightly. They needed to.

Keeping the faith

A massive 45 minutes for England ahead!

Double England change

Sturridge and Vardy on


Hart not a popular man

Half time: England 0 Wales 1

England leave the pitch to a chorus of boos. They have dominated but find themselves behind after Gareth Bale’s stunning strike.

Someone's happy

GOAL! England 0 Wales 1

What a belter from Bale. 1-0 Wales. Totally against the run of play. Poor from Hart, though.

So close!

Another England chance as Smalling nods wide. How is this still 0-0?

Penalty shout turned down

England have calls for a penalty ignored after Davies handles in the box. England having the better of it but it remains 0-0 with 33 minutes gone.

Cahill chance

Rooney floats a free kick in but Cahill can’t get enough on his header to trouble Hennessey. Game is heating up now.

Clear who they're backing

England free-kick

Harry Kane strikes in and it flies way over. Think it’s still rising. Might be across the channel soon. Still 0-0.

Moans and groans
