Best Moments from Group B: Sturridge's Last Minute Winner & Gareth Bale's Brilliance
With the Group stages coming to an end, we take a look back at the best moments from Group B.
Eric Dier’s performance so far has been reassuring, acting as a strong presence in the midfield and even delivering a moment of magic in the form of a great free-kick goal against Russia.
Russia stifles England victory
I guess we can’t mention Dier’s free-kick without talking about Russia’s equaliser. Although Russia are now eliminated, Vasili Berezutski's stoppage-time header that cancelled out Dier’s free kick is to be commended and showed the necessity of closing out games.
Hamsik delivers against Russia
The Slovakian star truly showed his strength against Russia, setting up Weiss for the first and then scoring a screamer himself.
Bale's freekick vs England
Wales going through to the knockout stage is a historic effort and their success is undeniably correlated with Bale’s own. Whether you thought it was a Joe Hart blunder or not, Bale’s free-kick was a huge strike
Sturridge's Last Minute Winner vs Wales
Criticism of how the England team and fans have no passion is something we seem to hear time and time again. Daniel Sturridge’s injury-time winner against Wales definitely appeared to prove that wrong, inspiring the team and England fans everywhere.
