Bale: Wee Joe is "Vitally Important" to Wales

Wee Joe Allen doesn't get much love, but Real Madrid star and Welsh teammate Gareth Bale is happy to sing his praises. Coming into this summer, it's very difficult to predict Joe Allen's professional future. Manager Jürgen Klopp has always been quick to praise the diminutive Welsh midfielder, but has equally relegated Allen to squad duty for much of the season. Even when Allen shined in the center of the park, he just couldn't get a look in for Liverpool's biggest games of the season. This, in turn, has led to an understandable rumbling of transfer rumors throughout the summer. Regardless...

Relax. Christian Eriksen isn't leaving because of #Brexit.

The Danish playmaker's agent is talking a big game, but he's almost certainly blowing smoke. It's a familiar saga to Spurs fans—a top young player establishes himself on the European stage thanks to a series of strong performances for Tottenham. Then in the summer that player begins to talk about leaving and by summer's end he's gone. We've seen it most recently with Gareth Bale and Luka Modric, even if Modric's departure was delayed by a season thanks to Daniel Levy. The same story is threatening to play out again, thanks to Christian Eriksen's agent, but his claims about Thursday's...

"He's Joe Allen, and he's crucial for us" - plaudits...

EVERY day is Joe Allen appreciation day. Gareth Bale laughed when he was asked for his reaction to the social media tributes that have flowed in for the midfielder ever since his performance against Russia underlined his Euro 2016 form. Suddenly, since Allen stepped out onto the field with the kind of confidence and assured belief in his game to go with his natural talent, the viral pictures and videos are less of the mocking kind and more of genuine appreciation for his...

GARETH Bale has insisted Wales's special win over Russia was one of the greatest team performances he's ever been part of. The Real Madrid superstar has helped his club side to two Champions League crowns, but after Monday's stunning 3-0 victory over Russia in Toulouse, he hailed an incredible display that saw Wales make it to the knock-out stages of Euro 2016. The 26-year-old joined the likes of Michel Platini, Hristo Stoichkov and Alan Shearer by scoring in all three group games...

Aaron Ramsey, man of the match

He scored one and was generally awesome as Wales beat Russia 3-0. Wales won their Euro 2016 group today, beating Russia 3-0 behind goals from Gareth Bale, Neil Taylor, and Arsenal’s own Aaron Ramsey, who opened the scoring in the 11th minute with a goal that I’d link to but which was pulled down from online sources in between it being scored and now so thanks UEFA nobody wanted to see it anyway. Aaaaaaanyway, it was a fairly comprehensive win for Wales, and one of the most comprehensivest players in the match was our Mr. Ramsey, who was rewarded for his services by being named Man of...

Why Manchester United absolutely must buy Gareth Bale

Though Manchester United are ineligible for the Euros -- something about not technically being a country -- the Busby Babe has a scout in France keeping an eye for anybody that might improve the club. After Wales' delightful win against Slovakia and narrow loss against England, here's how Gareth Bale might fit in at Old Trafford ... Pros Is very, very, very, very, very good at football.

Roy Hodgson’s tactics aren’t helping Harry Kane succeed at Euro 2016

Kane is a striker who thrives on service into the box, something that has been very much lacking thanks to the way Roy Hodgson sets up his midfield. Harry Kane was yanked off the pitch at halftime of England’s 2-1 Euro 2016 win over Wales for Jamie Vardy, a move that felt both understandable at the time and a little harsh to the Premier League golden boot winner. England had, up to that point, endured a somewhat miserable half of football against a bunkered Wales defense, and trailed thanks to a long free kick from Gareth Bale that was bundled into the net by a red-faced Joe Hart. Roy...

Manchester City Internationals: All updates from Copa America, Euro 2016

England's time at Euro 2016 is in danger of ending very soon ahead of the second game of Group B on Thursday. After a disappointing draw against Russia in opener, where the Three Lions dominated almost the entire game and conceded a silly late equalizer, there is no other option than to get a victory. The problem is: Gareth Bale, Aaron Ramsey and Wales are coming in strong after a great win over Slovakia in their opening game. The Welsh are in great form, have one of the best players in football and will make England suffer. But it should be a fantastic match, one you should definitely not...

ENGLAND'S extra quality eventually shone through in their Euro 2016 clash with Wales, says former Derby County striker Dean Saunders. Daniel Sturridge's last-gasp winner gave Roy Hodgson's men a dramatic 2-1 victory in Lens on Thursday. They had trailed at the break after Gareth Bale beat Joe Hart from distance with a free kick. But Jamie Vardy levelled early in the second half and fellow substitute Sturridge clinched the three points in added time. Saunders, who won 75 caps for Wales...
