Daniel-sturridge-england-wales-euroSubstitutes Jamie Vardy and Daniel Sturridge scored as England came from behind to beat Wales 2-1 in Thursday’s ‘Battle of Britain’ at Euro 2016.

Gareth Bale had put Wales ahead with a first-half free-kick, but Roy Hodgson’s half-time changes proved crucial as England roared back after the break.

Vardy smashed home on 56 minutes before Sturridge struck in injury-time to see England leapfrog their opponents to move top of Group B.

A point against Slovakia on Monday would guarantee progress for Hodgson’s side with a win confirming top spot, while Wales can also secure a place in the last 16 if they beat Russia in their final game.

Chris Coleman knew a win over England would have seen Wales reach the last 16 and made three changes to the side that beat Slovakia with Wayne Hennessey fit to start in goal; Joe Ledley in midfield and Hal Robson-Kanu up front.
