GOAL! Russia 0-1 Wales (Ramsey 11)
What a start! Allen is the creator, Ramsey the finisher. Allen picks up a loose ball in midfield and has the time and space to pick a perfect pass through to the onrushing Ramsey. The Arsenal midfielder takes a touch then dinks the ball over the onrushing Akinfeev.
GOAL! Russia 0-2 Wales (N Taylor 20)
Neil Taylor? Neil? Taylor? It is indeed! 149 appearances for Swansea – zero goals. But he’s got one in his third game at Euro 2016. Bale is given the freedom of midfield and rumbles coolly forward before slipping a pass behind the right-back Smolnikov to put Taylor through on goal. He has an age – an age – to think about his shot, after which he opts to punt the ball straight at Akinfeev. He’s a little lucky to see the ball fall back to him and makes no mistake this time, volleying the ball past the goalkeeper from close range
GOAL! Russia 0-3 Wales (Bale 67)
And that should be that. Bale gets the goal his performance has thoroughly deserved. Ramsey pokes the ball beyond the Russia defence, the offside Vokes smartly ignores the ball, which allows the charging Bale to pick up and poke his third goal of the tournament beyond Akinfeev.
Full-time: Russia 0-3 Wales
They’ve done it. What a moment for Wales! What a performance.
