16:00 Goodbye. Thanks for spending the day with us everyone. Hope you can join us on Monday when England play Slovakia and Wales meet Russia. We’ll leave you with a stat and the Group B standings after two games:

15:57 Report. Here’s how it happened in Lens with our reaction to England 2-1 Wales.

15:53 FULL TIME! England 2-1 Wales. Subs Vardy and Sturridge scored at either ends of the second-half, and Chris Coleman and Gareth Bale can feel a bit hard done by!

15:50 GOAL! Sturridge has won it for England at stoppage time. Vardy and Alli combine to slip it back to him, as tired Welsh defensive bodies just can’t get there.

15:40 Will there be a winner?

15:32 SUBSTITUTION Lallana OFF Rashford ON

15:30 UPDATE Lots and lots of England pressure:

15:20 Have an in-play bet:

15:15 GOAL! England level through Vardy. Close-range finish from a corner Rooney when drawing a low save from Hennssesy. Wales don’t defend the second-ball that comes down the left.


15:02 SUBSTITUTIONS Sterling and Kane OFF Sturridge and Vardy ON for England!

14:44 GOAL! Bale nets another free-kick! England 1-0 down.

14:38 CLOSE! Smalling’s powerful header from a right-wing corner drops just wide.

14:34 HANDBALL SHOUT! The ball rolls down onto Ben Davies’ outstretched hand off his head. Was it a penalty? Nothing doing from the German ref.

14:29 CLOSE! Ledley fouls Kane, and Rooney’s resultant free-kick is nodded in the grateful gloves of Hennessey.

14:26 Kane pain:

14:22 UPDATE England on top, but no other clear cut chances created as yet.

14:09 CHANCE Sterling skies it! Harry Kane sets Adam Lallana away on the counter, but Man City man Raheem blazes over!

10:39 Don’t telegraph tomorrow…

10:33 Stat attack… Stoke City boss Mark Hughes was the last Welshman to score a goal in a senior international against England. Oh, and it was in 1984. The Three Lions have won the last four to nil.

10:26 Use it! No danger of “crouch, bind, set” in Lens, but England are 2-0 up in international rugby matches against Wales this year. Am omen or no bearing at all?

10:24 Nice legs, Gareth… Bale is the star man for Wales no question. Even if he is showing off:
