England Set to Clash with Wales

England football has a long and storied history – of dominating their Welsh neighbors, illustrated by an England 23 game unbeaten streak against Wales from 1956 to 1976. That being said, the two teams haven’t played since 2011 and Wales is a much improved squad, boasting a wealth of high-level club talent including names like Gareth Bale, Aaron Ramsey and Joe Allen.

SHARK BITES
  • The goal total has gone under 2.5 in England and Wales last 5 matches.
  • England is 11-2-3 in their last 16 fixtures.
  • England also drew their first match of the 2012 Euro’s. They won their next two fixtures and placed first in their group.

The two squads will square off at the Euro’s for the first time ever on Thursday at the Stade Felix Bollaert-Delelis. England is currently the moneyline favorite on Bovada with a -200 line for The Three Lions to win and a +600 line for the Welshmen.

Wales finished ahead of Bosnia and Herzegovina to claim their first ever entry to the European Championship with a 6-3-1 record in qualifying and had a surprising 1-0 upset over Belgium along the way.

England went a perfect 10-0 in their qualifying campaign but dropped two points to a Russian team they were expected to beat in their Euro opener. If England expects to move on from the group stage, they will need to score more than one goal in their matches going forward – because with Joe Hart minding the net, anything is possible.
