Euro 2016 - Lions will slay the Dragons

Gareth Bale will be by far the best player on the pitch as Wales battle England. However, it looks impossible that his 1-man show can overcome an England team that sent good vibes in their last match against Russia. The Lions were unlucky to concede during extra-time in a match they fully deserved to win. A repeat of this form will put them in good stead against the Welsh who labored to edge Slovakia. England to win.

Ukraine and Northern Ireland both lost their first match against the 2 favored teams of Group C notably Germany and Poland. This match will be the decider as to who can snatch 3rd place. I give the Irish the edge here because they are better organized and they look mentally stronger but the result could easily swing to the more technically-gifted Ukrainians. Whoever will score the first crucial goal will hold the advantage here.

Germany were alright and not spectacular in overcoming Ukraine in their first match. However, I don't anticipate them to have any problem containing the stronger Poles. The most Lewandowski and co can hope for is a draw point but the Germans have the necessary experience to make the difference before the final whistle.

Win: England, Germany, Northern Ireland
