This is unquestionably the game that the Welsh supporters will be looking forward to the most and they will go into it believing that they have every chance of securing a positive result.
England may well have the more talented squad, but it’s Wales who will have the biggest star on show in Gareth Bale and they may well have more in terms of team spirit and togetherness too. If Bale gets opportunities to run at the suspect England defence you have to believe that he could achieve some success. That said Wales could themselves struggle with the pace England possess going forward.
Naturally Roy Hodgson’s men are firm favourites for the match in the England v Wales betting odds, but the local derby factor lessens the appeal on that front. Any England v Wales free bets might look at backing Wales on the Asian Handicap, the draw or perhaps even a correct score. A 1-1 draw isn’t without some appeal.
Depending on their opening result against Russia, a draw here wouldn’t be disastrous for England. There is also the not inconsiderable benefit for both England and Wales of already knowing the result of Russia v Slovakia from the previous day going into this game.
Whatever the group situation going into this match, England will know that Wales will give everything in this game. Taking England’s scalp still means an awful lot to the other Home Nations.
Historically it’s no surprise that England have tended to get the better of Wales, but they will need to be on their game to ensure that they don’t lose what is arguably the biggest clash the two teams have ever had. Make sure to grab your England v Wales free bets today!
