England take on Russia on Saturday 11th June, 2016, with kickoff at 20:00. This match is currently being shown LIVE on ITV.

The first match for Roy Hodgson’s boys in the European Championships is against a Russia team probably thanking their lucky stars they are still allowed to play at all. The majority of Russian athletes are currently in the deep cacky after a giant doping scandal, and only the fact so many of the players here are not based in Russia is what probably saved them.

If England do come through this match it’ll be something of an achievement, and that’s exactly what they want as two wins will be enough to get them into the next phase.
