The much-discussed 'Battle of Britain' between England and Wales in Lens provided plenty of talking points for fans both inside the stadium and on social media. The historic rivalry between the two countries and the pre-match mind games only served to intensify the online chatter.

And once the game kicked off at the Stade Bollaert-Delelis, the rivalry went up another notch. England fans were predictably thrilled with the dramatic nature of their 2-1 win, which was secured via a last-minute goal from Liverpool's Daniel Sturridge. The injury-prone striker was the toast of social media within seconds of finding the net.

On the other hand, Raheem Sterling came in for some particularly stinging criticism from fans who were dumbfounded by his glaring miss in the first half and the Manchester City man's generally insipid performance.

Another England player who came in for some stern criticism during the first-half was Joe Hart, who was a fault for Gareth Bale's long-range freekick. The City man was also ribbed for conceding against Russia in England's opening game.

But the Three Lions came storming back into the match in the second half after the introductions of Jamie Vardy and Daniel Sturridge. The sought-after Leicester City striker got England's equalising goal and fans on social media were quick to praise officials for allowing the strike.
