Wales shocked everyone by finishing top of their group, even though they dropped a game against England in another thrilling battle of Britain game. Wales must be sick of playing British teams! But they showed how good they can be with a 3-0 win over Russia in their final group game.
Their success is built upon a strong team ethic, with two humble superstar players leading from the front. Real Madrid forward Gareth Bale has 3 goals already in the tournament, and is hoping to be leading goalscorer in the tournament. Arsenal midfield star Aaron Ramsey has also made a name for himself, scoring once (against Russia) and assisting Wales’ winner against Slovakia in their opening game.
Northern Ireland has enjoyed a fairytale at this tournament. After surprising all by qualifying in the first place, they’ve shocked everybody by getting this far. And they also showed they’ve got incredible fighting power, only going down 1-0 to world champions Germany in their final group game.
They also have Wigan cult-figure Will Grigg, who they hope will be “On Fire” in the game and get the goals they need to win. We’ll soon see!
