Euro 2016 Group B, England, Wales, Russia and Slovakia to battle

As for every group, the draw has been made for the Euro 2016 Group B. The predicted finish of the group is the following: 1. England, 2. Wales, 3. Russia, 4. Slovakia.

England to win the Group B has 54.3 percent. They have already won all the qualifying matches but then again the nation is not convinced that this is the winning team. There is Wayne Rooney that is the last one standing from the so called “Golden Generation” and the people think that he is not enough to win the championship. That’s why the manager Roy Hodgson has a young team to challenge the opponents.

Wales has 9.4 percent to win the Euro 2016 Group B. The really possible achievement of the Wales team is going to be the second round. This is what they are hoping for and having Gareth Bale on board it might look reachable. They will try to find him in every situation as he is the only one that is scoring the goals in this team. The trip to France can be short if they don’t find another goal scorer in the team except for Bale.

Russia has 22.3 percent to win the Group B. Leonid Slutsky has been called from CSKA Moscow to coach the national team after Fabio Capello has been left out of it. Leonid continued to coach at CSKA Moscow and coaching the national Russian team as well. His work has paid off and now he got the players into the 2016 Euro Championship and considering the good players they have a nice chance to win the group or take the second place.

14.9% percent for the Slovakian team to win the Euro 2016 Group B. This is only their second international championship and not much is expected from this team. Marek Hamsik is the top man of the team after they have managed to put out Italy from the 2010 Euro. Also back then not much was expected but look what they have done there, entering the top 16.

The must see game from this group is England versus Wales. In Lens on 16th of June this match will be played and all eyes are going to be pointed at Bale. Wales has never won against England and maybe they are looking at defeat again.

The best individual battle is going to be Skrtel versus the strikers of the England team. Which striker of England’s team Skrtel is going to mark is the question here. Maybe the revived Rooney is on target or Harry Kane who is said to be the coming force. The usual physical style is going to be shown from the Slovakian player and we will be there to see it.

The X Factor of the Euro 2016 Group B is the doubt for the England’s team and can it perform? Every match has its weight especially the opening one against Wales. The team has to prepare just to show to the doubters that they are up for a challenge and they can bring back the glory days.
