Wales fans were buzzing after finishing above England at Euro 2016.

The Dragons topped Group B thanks to a 3-0 win over Russia that coincided with England’s goalless draw with Slovakia.

It was payback for Wales, who lost to England on Thursday, and their supporters let their great rivals have it on Twitter.

Wales will play the third-placed team from Group A (Albania), C or D in the knockout round.

Meanwhile, England will face the team that finishes runners-up in Group F. That will be Austria, Portugal, Hungary or Iceland.

Wales were in a good position to reach the knockout stage after beating Slovakia 2-1 in their opening game but Euro 2016 has gone better than anyone could have expected.

Coleman's great coaching

It’s a testament to Coleman, who didn’t let the loss to England damage his team’s spirits.

Much was made of the rivalry but even before the game against England, Coleman ensured his players saw the bigger picture - progressing from the group and not focusing solely on beating the Three Lions.

"The big thing for us is getting through. It's not about beating England and not getting through," he said, per BBC Sport.

"I said before we kicked a ball that everyone was looking at this game as a battle of Britain. But it's only another game for us.

"We have to take care of business."

We certainly look forward to seeing plenty more of this impressive Welsh side.
