Euro 2016: England vs Wales preview IBTimes UK

Well what an enthralling, dramatic and intriguing Thursday afternoon. England outlast Wales and grab a winner with a minute remaining, to break their resolve of Chris Coleman's men.

That brings an end to our live coverage of England vs Wales. We'll have all the reaction to the game coming up, including live coverage of Ukraine vs Northern Ireland and Germany vs Poland. Until next time, goodbye.


Full time: England 2-1 Wales

England complete their first ever half-time comeback in a major tournament with a dramatic stoppage time winner to beat Wales in Lens. Gareth Bale's free-kick put Wales ahead but substitutes Jamie Vardy and Daniel Sturridge netted in a much-improved display from Roy Hodgson's men. Very cruel on Wales but you can't argue with how England were rewarded for their endeavor.


One more chance for Wales? Gareth Bale throws himself at a Davies cross and he heads wide of Hart's goal.


Goal: England 2-1 Wales (Daniel Sturridge)

In the penultimate minute of injury time England get the winner. Daniel Sturridge exchanges passes with Dele Alli, composes himself and toe-pokes through Hennessey. Delight for England, despair for Wales.


Gary Cahill heads over. Three minutes to be added on in Lens. Will either team find a winner?


Rashford skips through Gunter but Ashley Williams nips in and makes a huge tackle. Another corner for England. One minute left.


Eric Dier fires a cross in which evades everyone and Hennessey collects with ease. Wales so close to a valuable point.


Wales have set up camp on the edge of the six-yard box. Can England break through?


Reports from outside the stadium in Lens.


Corner for England but Wayne Rooney can't test the Wales defence and Joe Allen clears. The Three Lions are just running out of ideas a little but they are dominating the game.


Wales' first effort in anger in this second half. Jonny Williams runs at the England back-our but his shot was always rising and England breathe a huge sigh of relief. Once again Wales have just weathered a little bit of England pressure.


Rashford has started out on the left-hand side, which arguably isn't playing to his strengths. England still on the front-foot but Wales hold firm as Ramsey heroically blocks Rooney's shot.


Just 15 minutes remaining in Lens. This is becoming an increasingly good result for Wales, but an equally horrid one for England. No wonder Roy Hodgson is going for it.


We talk about England's gung-ho approach, but this would be a stunning effort if wales can hold out here with four strikers on the pitch. Jonny Williams meanwhile wants a penalty but he goes down far too easily under a challenge from Chris Smalling.


Jonny Williams on for Wales as Hal Robson-Kanu departs. Rashford coming on for his competitive England debut, as he replaces Adam Lallana.


Marcus Rashford being readied for England. England have thrown everything at Wales but the storm has been weathered somewhat. Does either side have a second wind?


Daniel Sturridge runs from inside his own half, approaches the edge of the Wales box and curls the ball over.

Change for Wales and it is Joe Ledley, who looks like he has a leg injury having returned six weeks after breaking his leg. Dave Edwards on in his place.


Wales are being subject to wave after wave of England attacks but somehow they survive the onslaught. Daniel Sturridge miscues on the volley before Dele Alli shoots wide. Coleman's men have to show the stubbornness which got them to France to withstand this.


England really on top now and Wales are faltering. Kyle Walker's cross is punched away by Hennessey before Lallana's shot is blocked behind by Davies.


Goal: England 1-1 Wales (Jamie Vardy)

England level 11 minutes after the break. Ashley Williams heads a Sturridge cross towards his own goal and Vardy reacts first to turn it beyond Hennessey. Roy Hodgson's substitutes combine to come to England's rescue. Gareth Bale wants offside but the last touch came off a Wales defender.


Wayne Hennessey forced into his first major save, turning away Wayne Rooney's effort. Better from England.


Eric Dier plays a hopeful ball out towards Jamie Vardy, who try as he might can't keep the ball in. Not a great start to this second half from England. Aaron Ramsey tests Joe Hart with a dipping volley which is easily saved.


Food for though for Pep Guardiola, who reports have claimed has been looking to sign a new goalkeeper at Manchester City. The first half fumbling of Gareth Bale's free-kick was hardly the way to impress the Spaniard.
