Mr Angry I thought Wales were superb yesterday, and frankly, should have won by more than 2-0.

And it was brilliant to see a player in the dying seconds of a game NOT trying to keep it in the corner (which is one of my personal bugbears), but trying to score.

If they finish second (which is highly likely) then they play the team that finishes 2nd in the Belgium, Denmark, Russia, Finland group in Amsterdam, and as Belgium are going to win that Group, Wales shouldn't fear any of the others.

Jumping WAY ahead on so many levels, there is a possibility of a Wales v England semi at Wembley..............now that WOULD be an occasion!


I would definitely want to avoid Denmark. Think they would beat us. Would be very happy with Russia or Finland.

Winston Biscuit Why do you see people going down with cramp in international tournaments but is not something that happens all that much in league football?!


Maybe because the games are being played in the height of summer.

Denmark the touch of Brighton’s about them - 43 shots for them so far, 7 against…

1 goal scored - 3 conceded

Belgium showing their class and why I tipped them to win the whole thing. To come from behind against a very good Denmark side is commendable

De Bruyne made a big difference. Great player. Not convinced they are good enough defensively.

Think Austria might upset the Dutch.

Why have Wales "all but" qualified for the last 16,and Italy "qualified" according to the radio?
The top 3 go through, and Turkey can't catch us. So what have I missed?

Top 3 dont go through in all groups. Only in 4 of the 6.

Yeah. GD of 5 would need to be overturned, and even then with 4 points Wales would likely be one of the four best 3rd placed teams anyway

Why does it keep trying to communicate with me? Can't it just take a hint?

That was a very comfortable win for the Netherlands, never doubted that they would make it to the next round.

I'm all for applauses and stuff but really think it should take place before games and not during. Just can never imagine it happening in an old school Manchester vs arsenal Derby with Keane and Vieira captaining the teams

Normal circumstances maybe, this was a young man who nearly lost his life playing football - more important things prevail

Will obviously fare better with Arnautovic fully fit/available

Struggled against Macedonia too until their subs

Netherlands looking strong, along with Italy so far

Obviously we all know what the big game is today but the Sweden v Slovakia game is very interesting too. Slovakia can go through against all the odds with a win where as Sweden have to win in order to give themselves an easier time of it in their final game. Think Slovakia could upset a few.
