In their first-ever Euro Finals, Wales produced a dogged display to secure an historic 2-1 win against Slovakia, with Welsh Galactico Gareth Bale netting a fine free-kick.
The goal came after just 10 minutes, with Bale’s dipping free-kick wrong-footing ‘keeper Matúš Kozáčik.

However, Slovakia fought back, with Napoli schemer Marek Hamsik at the heart of the action.
The equaliser eventually came just after the hour-mark, with sub Ondrej Duda scoring after some weak Welsh defending.
Chris Coleman’s side regrouped as the second-half wore on, with Aaron Ramsey missing a great headed opportunity.
Then, on 81 minutes, sub Hal Robson-Kanu fired home via a miscued effort after a touch from Ramsey, a goal which sent the Welsh contingent in Bordeaux wild, and ultimately secured a victory for Dragons in their first-ever Euro finals appearance.
The win was the first ever by a British team in their opening game of a Euro finals and sets up Coleman and co. very nicely ahead of their forthcoming monumental clash with England.
