Liverpool midfielder Joe Allen has described Wales’ 3-0 Euro 2016 win over Russia as a special night and one he’ll never forget.
As England, with Nathanial Clyne , Daniel Sturridge, Adam Lallana and Jordan Henderson found getting past battling Martin Skrtel’s Slovakia side an impossibility, elsewhere in France Wales were putting the Russians to the sword.
The win for Chris Coleman’s men, minus Danny Ward who was on the bench, means they topped Group B ahead of England and should, theoretically, have an easier match in the next round.
Allen, who’s been linked with a return to Swansea this summer, said: “What a night, one I’ll never forget.
“I thought we started the game so well and from start to finish, we thoroughly deserved the win. To win in style like that is a special moment for Welsh football.”
