It was one of the greatest nights in Welsh football history - they beat Russia 3-0 to go top of group B, ahead of England.

Goals from Aaron Ramsey and Neil Taylor gave Chris Coleman's side a deserved early lead.

Gareth Bale sealed the victory in the second half.

It wasn't quite as glorious for England. They were held to a surprise 0-0 draw with Slovakia.

They still qualified for the knockout stages, but in second place in their group behind Wales.

Manager Roy Hodgson made six line-up changes before the game, including resting captain Wayne Rooney.

But England couldn't break through the tough Slovakian defence to score.

Northern Ireland hopes

All eyes are on Northern Ireland now to see if they can make it through to the final 16.

It would mean all three home nations in the Euros getting into the knockout stage of the championship.

Northern Ireland can be sure to progress if they defeat Germany in their final Group C game in Paris on Tuesday night.

If they do, it'll be their first time in the knockout stages of a major tournament in 34 years.
