    Suspect that Wales is going to be frightened a lot more than they'd like.

    Wales hopefully. Can respect Northern Ireland's achievement but would never root for them in any capacity.

    I hear their defense is terrified of Will Grigg.

    I know this is going way, way out there, but how many wins would it take for Northern Ireland and Ireland to meet?

    Are they in opposite sides of the bracket, or can they meet prior to the finals? :laugh:

    Wales are the better team but for once in this tournament they are playing a game which they are expected to win and not the underdogs, lets see if they can perform like that. I 'worry' this will be a typical British style of game, all hustle/bustle and low technical skill which neither team risks too much. I went for Wales in the poll

    Now that's gotta be some sort of conflict, having an English ref in a game with two British (British in the sense of the demonym for the United Kingdom, obviously Northern Ireland isn't on the island of Great Britain) teams? Do they figure the conflict cancels out? This just doesn't seem right to me.

    Wales win this one 2-0, goals from Gareth Bale and Aaron Ramsey.

    I just saw that Joe Allen was voted MotM in both the game against Slovakia and against Russia. I'm thinking Bale for MotM in this one.

    Could be on a collision course with Belgium...that'll be a tough one.

    Will Grigg's on fire. The whole defence is terrified of him.

    Bet a quick 10$ on Kyle Lafferty being the first goal-scorer of the game.

    Boring game as I feared it would be, two British teams involved in a high pressure match is usually a let down

    Poland was disappointing earlier; Wales even more disappointing. Not a fan of how Wales' forwards are situated in buildup.
