Wales v Northern Ireland

Wales take on Northern Ireland on Saturday 25th June, 2016, with kickoff at 17:00. This match is currently being shown LIVE on BBC1.

The first game to feature a team from the home nations features two teams from the home nations, if that makes any sense. Actually, now I think about it, the phrase ‘home nations’ has rather fallen apart since Nigel Farage got his dishonest way, but at least Wales and Northern Ireland are united in not really having much of a say in that question.

If they go through, the Welsh players will again be forced to hail Bale and pretend they are a one-man team, which is a good reason for me to want an Irish victory here.
