Can Wales Continue To Surprise With a Victory on Thursday?

Published on June 15th, 2016 5:21 pm EST

Wales will look to punch their ticket to the next round of Euro 2016 when they do battle with England on Thursday afternoon in France.

England, on the other hand, will look to gain a lead in the group with a win.

Wales was able to top Slovakia in their first game of the tournament 2-1, thereby giving themselves a great opportunity to move on to the next round. England, on the other hand, played to a disappointing 1-1 draw against Russia and now has some work to do against Wales. England can't afford another disappointing result on Thursday or else they risk being bounced from the tournament early, despite being one of the favourites to win.

Wales will be looking to rely heavily on the boot of Gareth Bale on Thursday, while England will be relying on a multi-headed offensive attack that includes the likes of Harry Kane, Daniel Sturridge, Jamie Vardy and Wayne Rooney. If these four players can get going for England, their side will be very hard to stop on Thursday.

Here are the current betting odds for Wales/England on Thursday:

England, 1.53
Draw, 4.00
Wales, 7.00

As you can see, England is the clear favourite to win, though Wales is certainly a live underdog with Gareth Bale, one of the top players in the world, on their squad.
