GOALS have dried up in the past few days so hopefully we'll see some action in Group B's final two matches.

All four matches have seen both score and of course there has been excitement with late goals especially in the England games.

It's still two from any four to qualify so that should mean a bit more entertainment unless Wales are losing and England and Slovakia see fit to play out a draw that will suit both.

England are in pole position ahead of their meeting with Slovakia and Wales will qualify if they avoid defeat against Russia and Slovakia fail to beat the English.

Roy Hodgson's men need a point to go through but finishing top gives them an easier last-16 tie against a third-placed team.

It's been a rollercoaster ride for England but I believe they'll notch the win that helps them and Wales even if Hodgson as suggested rests five or six. They are a biggest 4-5 with Ladbrokes and 2-11 to avoid defeat.

Supersubs Jamie Vardy and Daniel Sturridge turned the tide England's way against Wales and look likely to start. If he does consider Sturridge at 9-2 with Ladbrokes to break the deadlock.

England always look likely to concede and both to score pays 6-5 at Paddy Power. An England win and btts is 18-5 at Coral.

Slovakia's star man is Napoli's Marek Hamsik and he is 9-2 at 888sport to net.

Some stats. England have three wins out of three against the Slovakians and interestingly with the late goals being scored seven of the eight thay have netted against Slovakia have been notched after the 60th minute.

On what we've seen Wales should beat Russia but a draw is possible as the Russian have to improve.

Wales are a best 21-10 with McBookie but keep the stalemate on side and take Wales draw no bet at 21-20 with McBookie.

Gareth Bale has been the star of the show with two free-kick goals. He is 4-1 at Ladbrokes and William Hill to score first for the third game running and 8-5 at Stan James to net at any time.

Russia looked pedestrian against England and Slovakia but scored each time and both teams to score pays 11-10 at Paddy Power.

Some stats. Russia have won their last three meetings with Wales but only one of their last seven games.

Russia have kept two clean sheets in their last 17 games at the Euro finals so again that lends weight to btts.

And for late goal backers four of Russia's last five goals scored in the Euros have come in the final 11 minutes.

Bets to Consider


England v Slovakia btts

Wales draw no bet

Wales v Russia btts

Bale to score

Inplay late goals after 76mins or so depending on state of play

    this could be another sit on the fence game until it gets to the point when Russia have to go for it.
    against England and Slovakia they left it until the last 10 mins to show some urgency and scored in both games during that period.
    half with most goals got to be 2nd half.
    if Russia get a lead, even though I am welsh, I wonder if we have the nous going forward to force an equaliser ?.
    they wont give bale a yard, so maybe ramsay could be the one to get on the scoresheet..
    if we score 1st I say 2-0 or 1-1 which will do me.
    if Russia score 1st 1-0 to them……
