Euro 2016: England Fails To Win As Wales Move To Top After Thrashing Russia

Wales thrashed Russia with an outstanding display in their final group game at Euro 2016, to reach the knockout stages of a major tournament for only the second time in their history.

Aaron Ramsey’s fantastic finish put Wales in the drivers seat, before Neil Taylor netted his first international goal as Chris Coleman’s side seized control with an inspired first-half performance.

There was no let-up in the second half as the irrepressible Gareth Bale struck to become the tournament’s leading scorer with three goals.

England’s goalless draw against Slovakia in Saint-Etienne was a major blessing  for Wales, as they progress as Group B winners and will face the third-placed team from Group A, C or D.

News of the England result filtered through to the Toulouse crowd a couple of minutes after the final whistle, adding to the celebration among Wales’ cheering supporters.
