Take a look at our betting guide to bet England vs. Wales during the Euro 2016.
Bet England – Wales Euro 2016 : Head to head
The two sides have not met since the Autumn of 2011. In their last four matches, dating back to 2004, the Welsh have never beaten England, shipping in a total of six goals without reply.
The last time Wales beat England was in May 1984, the game finished 1-0 and Stoke City manager Mark Hughes was the scorer.
Without a win against their neighbours the Welsh will be keen to secure a victory and go into this match with one of their strongest ever squads.

Wayne Rooney and Gareth Bale both finished the qualification stages with 7 goals apiece, and were the primary source of goals for their respective nations.
Depending on how England line up in the first match against Russia, you can expect them to stick with a very similar squad, barring any injuries.
Wayne Rooney is likely to start off the main striker, with either Vardy or Kane leading the England strike force, in the number 9 role.
Despite a good season for Spurs, Kane could well be behind for 2015/16 sensation Jamie Vardy, and considering his record breaking 14-goal streak, he’ll pose a threat to the Welsh back line.
Bale, despite early struggles in Spain, has developed as one of Real Madrid’s most important players, and will undoubtedly be the Welsh’s biggest threat in the tournament.
Wales also have Aaron Ramsey, who is no stranger to the back of the net, despite being deployed in the centre of the park.

On paper England look like the favourites, considering they’re used to international tournaments, and have an excellent squad.
Wales qualified in style and while many of their players are not household names, they have been far greater than the sum of their parts. They will also be keen to beat England for the first time in 32 years.
Despite seeing many seasoned internationals retire over the last few years, England have always underperformed and Euro 2016 offers a great opportunity for a fresh start with a new generation of players.
Betting on a draw between the two teams seems like a safe bet, considering their respective defensive stability.
Correct score betting
Both teams defended well in qualifying, and have kept four clean sheets in their last five matches. Barring any major injuries to their respective back fours it this match is unlikely to be a high scoring affair.
Considering the nature of their rivalry it will be a hotly contested match however, and both teams will look to attack. It’s hard to see the English defence keeping Gareth Bale quiet for 90 minutes, and it is uncommon for England to fail to score.
From this a 1-1 draw looks like a solid bet at the time of publication.
