England vs Wales is set to be a classic match as two rival teams play for what looks like top spot in Group B. This game is going to be amazing since the passion of both sides of fans will be display as the Welsh will to embarrass the English. Other than the atmosphere, both teams have shown that they have good teams and this should all lead to a great contest.

Bale will lead Wales but this team is made up of much more than the Real Madrid superstar. The likes of Ledley and Ramsey are both good midfield players and they have been working well together producing tons of opportunities for their side. It has to be said that the defensive is a little shaky to say the least but they are still full of talent and I think they can beat any side on their day.

England would be disappointed with their opening game draw to Russia and they will know this is a game they have to win. That being said this is a great side and their opening match performance was good so as far as I am concerned, I think they will win this match. This side is too good not to win here and although Bale is the best player in this game, England have the better side with a midfield which is much stronger. That along with the fact that Wales has a shaky defense makes England winning an even more likely outcome.

As far as betting is concerned, I don’t think we are getting the right price to bet on England to win outright and the handicap is way too risky considering the strength of the Welsh side. That being said, the goal line is still looking attractive and I think we should take the over here. Both teams have amazing attacking strength with Gareth Bale and Aaron Ramsey for Wales and Harry Kane and Jamie Vardy for England. I think we can expect a score of 3-2 or 2-1 which both get us over the line.
