Wales was another team that played in the Euro contest yesterday. This is one of the ways Wales, like Germany, is always always a contender, won over Russia in a 0-3 shut out that put them ahead in the competition, and allowed them to win Group B. It was Wales wasted little time getting started, scoring through Ramsey in the 11th minute. After a midfield turnover, Joe Allen split the defence action as he sped down the center of the field. Ramsey and Allen were the stars, leading to a Russian defeat.
Wales made the last eight of as an own goal from the Gareth McAuley of Northern Ireland settled a tense 1-0 match in Paris.
Aaron Ramsey discovered Gareth Bale in space and he made the most of it with an ideal ball into the box between goalkeeper Michael McGovern and McAuley.
Another team that is likely to be a top contender for the trophy is Belgium, which has performed well in the previous warm-up games. An example of a game that they have been able to beat is Netherlands, which is one of the best teams in Europe. This shows that the team will provide a great level of play and appear among the best teams in the tournament.
Wales had the simplest group, moreover (as long as Bale is suit) they are also a much better team than Ireland or Northern Ireland. It is not a League One striker they worry if any defences are terrified, but a two time Champions League winner. The growth of the Euros from 16 to 24 teams is designed that ‘s just what they are threatening to do, and so teams like Wales can thrive.
They’re looking more like the team before the tournament started we anticipated, and they’ll be looking to continue their winning streak and advancement to the quarterfinals.
Matches in this tournament so far have been draws at halftime, with teams becoming more daring as the game advances. Belgium themselves have matches and I believe this game will follow the same topic.
Belgium are favourites with this game tho.
Prediction: Wales wins!
