Euro 2016: England vs. Wales
June 16, 2016 by Marc Jerbs

On Thursday, brotherly neighbors England and Wales will in a Group B stage fixture at the Euro 2016. Game time is set at 3PM local time and will be played at the Stade Bollaert-Delelis in Lens Agglo, France.

Wales leads the Group B standing after a 2-1 win in their opening match against Slovakia. Both sides have met 103 times, with Wales's winning only 14 matches against England. Wales manager Chris Coleman believes his side is ready for the test and challenge when they face the highly touted England team.

Pressure is on the England side after a 1-1 draw against Russia last June 12. England manager Roy Hodson will play the same lineup he fielded against Russia against Wales. England's full backs Kyle Walker and Danny Rose are expected to have key roles in stretching Wales defense and create scoring opportunities for England's forwards and midfield runners.

The sportsbook handicappers have installed England as the favorites to beat Wales in their Group B stage fixture at the Euro 2016 on Thursday noon.
