Hmm, what a game this poses to be.

Russia in the last chance saloon, only managed 1 point from 2 games and they've looked horribly poor on the whole. A win gives them a chance of securing 2nd, depending on what England do against Slovakia. So they will need to go all out here.

Same for Wales, who after the elation of beating Slovakia must be crushed after the late defeat to England. They didn't show much attacking threat against England, but against a slow Russian defence, Bale and Robson-Kanu should have more joy.

Can see this one being a draw personally. Will be rooting for Wales though.

Don't see there being any sort of hangover from the England game.

Russia were dreadful for about 70 mins v Slovakia. The performance against England I only saw highlights of, from reading about it also, I guess you can credit England's performance as much for making Russia look bad, than Russia just being average themselves.

Although they probably will win, we can't be relying on England beating Slovakia. This will be different where we probably will be seeing much more possession.. if Ledley is injured I'd like to see Andy King come in for this one.

Will take a draw, but feel we have enough to win based on the 4 group games so far.

Hope Coleman actually instructs the players to go on the attack for once.

2-0, Taylor.

There's so much space in behind that backline.

Amazing isn't it. Although to be fair, the way they defended tonight was totally different to how they played against England. Glad Russia are out, they can take their hooligans with them.

That could have been 6 or 7 nil and they couldn't have complained. Bale knew he could just beat them on his own anytime he wanted to.

Well done Wales on winning the group, they've shown England how to break teams down and score goals. With a favourable draw Wales could be looking at a quarter final place which is a fantastic achievement for them. As for Russia can't believe how piss they've been, embarrassing performances and I can't believe England let them steal that point in the first game.

Fucking Hell. Russia are in danger of being the worst ever host nation at the 2018 WC if they dont pull their finger out. They are atrocious.
