Jack Wilshere got a rusty run-out for England v Slovakia, while Aaron Ramsey was Wales’ key player against Russia.
Hallelujah, Jack Wilshere finally got a start for England against Slovakia. Anything but a loss would do, with a win putting his country top of the group.
England started on the front foot and Jamie Vardy went close with an early chance.
Meanwhile, Aaron Ramsey started for Wales and scored within 11 minutes. Joe Allen put him through and the midfielder dinked the ball over Russia’s keeper. In the 20th minute, Wales went 2-0 up thanks to Neil Taylor.

Wilshere was rusty, which is to be expected considering how little game time he’s had. He made some decent runs but also kept misplacing passes.
He was taken off in the 56th minute.
Wales went 3-0 ahead in the 67th minute against Russia. Gareth Bale scored the goal, making him the highest goalscorer at Euro 2016 so far (three) – surprise surprise – but Rambo got a rather lovely assist.
Our Ramsey ended up as Wales’ key player.
