    How do people think England should play this, particularly baring in mind Wales' formation? Usually I'm not a fan as playing strikers in wide forward positions, but for this one I'd consider putting Vardy and Sturridge either side of Kane and having them play very narrow. I don't think the Welsh wing backs would really know what do in the situation, whether they are supposed to go forward and leave the defence exposed or stay back and support the centre backs, effectively becoming a back 5.

    I'd also have Dier sitting very deep and keeping an eye on Bale, hopefully allowing our own full backs to get up the pitch, almost becoming a 3-4-3 at times.

    Two up top. Wales play with three centre-backs. I'd treat it like a PL fixture and attempt to deploy a Leicester/Watford-esque formation.

    1-0 to England, Rooney. Think it'll be a very well contested game that lacks slightly in quality.

    I think Dier is the key man for England, as I imagine he'll have to keep Bale out of the game. If Bale can get the ball he could really hurt the fragile English defence. Mark him out the game (easier said than done) and we're pretty toothless, as demonstrated against Sweden last week when he was absent.

    Curious to see how England go against a 5 man defence.

    Bale has been giving plenty in the build-up. I think Thursday's match is going to have some real needle. Can't wait.

    What a **** that I can't watch the match in full length tomorrow. That is almost more interesting than Germany vs Poland. It would, if I am not a German who supports the German team.

    Would say this match ends up with a draw.

    Nah England won't win when Woy the clueless git is in charge. He is the Arsene Wenger of international football. No desire at all.

    Me too. I am not even British. Does this have something to do with the match, with this thread anyway? no. So the whole discussion does not matter.
