FT: TURKEY 0-2 WALES
Wales have done it again. They’re pretty much into the knockout stages of the Euros.
Every man played their part. The defence, in particular, deserve a lot of praise.
They were rock solid and put their bodies on the line to get the result.
But it was Bale’s brilliance in attack which played a major role in the win. Leading by example.
He set up Ramsey’s goal in the first half.
And in the 95th minute he wasn’t quite done with Turkey. He received the ball short from a corner and dribbled away from a couple of Turkish players close to the byline – before squaring it to Roberts.
And the defender planted the ball into the back of the net to seal the win.
Turkey dark horses? You’re having a laugh. They’ll need more than a miracle to make it through to the knockout stages.
They have minus-five goal difference and they have zero points on the board.
The lowest Wales can finish is third, but they have four points on the board and favourable goal difference.
Portugal – 2016 winners – didn’t win a group game but went through as one of the best third-placed teams on three points.
Wales can finish third and comfortably go through, without a doubt.
