Gareth Bale scored a brilliant free kick to give the Welsh the lead, but some attacking substitutions by Roy Hodgson provided England with the firepower to get back in it.

Not happy with a point, Hodgson continued his attacking mentality by throwing on Marcus Rashford:

But then, Daniel Sturridge won it for England with seconds remaining:

So Roy’s boys won it thanks to the super subs, and now go into their game against Slovakia in full control of Group B – bring on the world.
