Now, while Wales face a winnable looking tie against possibly Albania or failing that Gibraltar, our path to the final is looking a little more challenging. Get past the Group F runners up and we are likely to face France, followed by Germany. Which will make it all the more satisfying!
Thankfully at Patgod we prepare for every eventuality, so here’s our handy guide to England’s next opponents. Whoever they are.
Portugal – easy, all we have to do is stop Ronaldo. Stealing the dressing room mirror should do it.
Hungary – bit useful once, but not since colour television was invented. Glad to have got this far. Providing we don’t rest 8 players this time, we should be ok.
Austria – mini me Germany. Vardy v Fuchs? Just imagine the headlines if we f- er I mean mess up.
Iceland – a nation the size of Coventry, but being a grey lump of volcanic rock, with slightly better scenery. Likely to play out of their skins to prolong not having to return to Iceland. But avoid complacency and we’ll be fine. So it’s touch and go then.
See you in the quarters!
