Despite being pegged among the rank outsiders by more than a few bookies, we have now been presented with nigh-on irrefutable proof that Wales are going to emerge as the winners of Euro 2016.

The results have been posted by FourFourTwo, who used their review copy of the new official Euro 2016 gamemode on Pro Evolution Soccer to stage a scientific simulation of the entire tournament.

After just about sneaking through the group stages with three goalless draws, Wales went on to win the whole thing outright by seeing off Ukraine, Sweden and the Republic of Ireland in the second round, quarters and semi-finals respectively to book themselves a berth in the grand finale against France.

Yet another turn up for the books duly followed, with Gareth Bale an co. comfortably dispatching the hosts with an astonishing 4-1 trouncing at the Stade de France.

Wales fans, start dreaming! It’s written in the stars.

As for England, Roy’s boys crashed out at the semi-final stages, eventually losing 1-0 to beaten finalists France in a tense and nervy encounter.

The whole thing is documented in delightfully absurd detail here.

    Russia, England and Wales are in the same group. Only 2 can go through to the knockout stage. You have all the teams going through, which makes the experiment void. Sorry.

      I’ll think you will find all but 2 of the best 3rd place teams will also qualify if I’m not mistaken.

    • Gareth wales says:

      The six groups (A to F) would still contain four teams each, with the top two from each group still going through to the knockout stage. In the new format however, the four best third-ranked sides would also progress, leaving 16 teams going into the new round of 16 knockout stage, ahead of the usual quarter-finals, semi-finals and final, and only 8 teams going out at the group stage.[13] The format is exactly the one which was applied to the 1986, 1990 and 1994 FIFA World Cups, with the exception of the absence of a third-place play-off.

    @ Pedantic

    Actually, no. The four best third-placed teams will advance to the knockout-rounds as well, so the scenario is perfectly possible – if not plausible.

  3. Tel says:

    @ pedantic The top two from each group and the four best third places go through.

  4. ChrisCan says:

    The Euro group stage is structured differently than the World Cup. Some third placed teams will go through, which makes your comment void. Sorry.

    @Pedantic – Better luck next time, chap.
