Realistically, Wales need a point to qualify. Russia have to win to stand a chance.

Wales to win both to score at 6/1 is too generous to turn down.

Slightly cacking it over this one as playing for a draw and then losing to an average Russian team and going out would be pretty standard. Hopefully Coleman knows that playing as negatively as we did against England will be counterproductive. We played some nice stuff at points against Slovaks and hoping for that more positive approach tonight.

No problem mate, easy to separate the decent posters from the c unts. Not expecting much from Russia if they do manage to get through anyway, although it would be nice to get all 3 (england, russia and wales) through, so family banter can be retained for at least one more match. Realistically the only way that can happen now is for a good england victory, coupled with a narrow Russian one, and then Wales going through in 3rd, ahead of Albania by virtue of better goal difference. Both those results arent going to happen though. Still think this will be the more watchable game than England v the Slovaks.

Speaking to my neighbour, who said his son is out there for the match, and he's said the atmosphere before the match was amazing, with Russian and Welsh fans getting on well together. The Russians have been saying they view the ultras much like we viewed Millwall and the hooligan firms in the 1970's and 80's. Psycho idiots.

As for the match we've done really well so far. I wish we (Palace) would go for Allen and Taylor. I think both could do a decent job for us.

Nice that the Welsh will return with a good positive opinion of russian people.

Looks like you couldn't wish for an easier final group match.

Do Russia have a new generation of youth ready to come though in the next few years? If not they are going to get humiliated in their own backyard in 2018. It's been much talked about how their problems in 2018 are likely to come off the pitch but I'm sure senior people in Moscow are putting a lot of pressure on the Russian FA to find some players who can at least save face by getting them into the second round.

They are struggling with home grown players. They are in the process of naturalising some Brazilians.

The team with the Palace players in it finished top. Coincidence?

It's funny watching Wales with the likes of Vokes playing alongside Bale. Reminds me of being a kid at school, and they'd be that one top footballer destined for a pro club, having a kick about with other kids who can just about run a few yards never mind play football.

We've been put right by the Russians - Wales didn't win because they had the better footballers.

The MP Vladimir Zhirinovsky, leader of the nationalist LDPR party, declared that Wales won because they are nationalists who had been oppressed by the English.

Explains why the Slovaks beat the Russians then Comrade Zhirinovsky :D :p
