Euro 2016: Wales, England through to knockout stages
Wales and England are through to the knockout stages of Euro 2016 after their final Group B games.
Chris Coleman’s side beat Russia 3-0 to top the group at their first European Championship, with England second after being held 0-0 by Slovakia.
On Tuesday, Northern Ireland will look to join both sides as they face Germany in Paris (17:00 BST).
The top two teams in each of the six groups qualify automatically, plus the best four third-placed sides.
Real Madrid forward Gareth Bale, who scored Wales’ third goal against Russia, said: “We said we didn’t want to make the numbers up. Well, we can’t do any more than win the group. We look forward to seeing who we play next.”
England boss Roy Hodgson admitted finishing as runners-up in the group was a “disappointment” but added: “Who is to say the team we will play will be that much stronger?
“The way we are playing I am not frightened of anybody.”
Wales will play a third-place team from either Group A (Albania), Group D (one from Czech Republic, Croatia or Turkey) or Group C (one from Germany, Poland or Northern Ireland).
That depends on the combination of the four groups which provide the third-placed sides – explained in Uefa’s pre-determined formula below.
Whoever they face, Wales will play at Paris’ Parc des Princes on Saturday at 17:00 BST.
