ENGLAND

England won all their matches during qualifying, becoming only the sixth team to do so.

England are unbeaten in 23 Euro Fixtures played over 90 or 120 minutes. They did lose on penalties though to Italy in the UEFA EURO 2012 quarter-finals.

England face another team from the United Kingdom in the European Championships for the 2nd time. They first played Scotland at Euro 1996, winning the match 2-0.

With an average age of 25 years and 293 days, England’s starting 11 in their Euro 2016 opener against Russia was their second-youngest ever at a major tournament.

In their last 14 matches at major tournaments, England have scored more than once in just one match.

Eric Dier’s goal against Russia made him the 8th Tottenham player to score for England at a major tournament – more than any other club.

WALES

Wales haven’t been able to keep a clean sheet in their last 5 matches.

In his last three matches, Aaron Ramsey has scored two & assisted one goal for Wales.

Wales’ first ever shot on target at the European Championship finals resulted in a goal – Garth Bale’s freekick.

Bale became the first British player to score from a direct-freekick in a European Championship finals game.

With their win against Slovakia, Wales became the first British side to win their opening game at the Euro finals.

Before his winner against Slovakia, Hal Robson Kanu last scored for Wales in October 2014. Since that goal, only Bale & Ramsey have scored for Wales in competitive matches.
