Euro 2016 Wales vs Northern Ireland

Gareth Bale


The one true superstar in the Wales team, Gareth has lived up to his promise so far in France. He has scored three goals in as many games and will try and score again against Northern Ireland. How he will fare will give a good idea how the match will pan out for Wales.

Will Griggs


The man who will be looking to provide the goals for this Northern Ireland team, Will Griggs will be looking to get one past the brave Wales team early in the match. With Northern Ireland desperately looking for goals, Griggs and his team mates will be trying to past the Welsh defense at every opportunity.

Aaron Ramsey


After a promising display against Slovakia, Ramsey provided a masterful performance against England and Russia. His calmness under pressure was one of many attributes in an eye catching display against the rigid Russian team. His displays will go on to have a big say in what Wales can accomplish against the Irish. A strong showing in the Euro 2016 Wales vs Northern Ireland match  is important. It will go a long way in ensuring his team progresses through to the last 8.

Ashley Williams


The leader of this brave Wales team, Ashley Williams will be looking to lead his team from the front by helping keep a clean sheet against Northern Ireland. His experience and leadership qualities will be a beg help to a rather young Wales team. The last minute goal against England will hurt Wales and as captain Williams will want to lead from the front

Joe Allen


Joe Allen has been one of the Wales’ best performers in Euro 2016 Wales campaign. His immaculate passing ability coupled with a sharp footballing mind makes him a super weapon in the Welsh arsenal. His performance in the Euro 2016 Wales vs Northern Ireland match will have a big impact on who goes through into the quarter finals.
