England and Wales fans have been waiting for this fixture since the Euro 2016 draw was made back in December.
We’re now underway at the Stade Bollaert-Delelis in Lens, but before kick-off there were two spine-tingling national anthems belted out by the two sets of supporters.

Heading into this second round of fixtures, there was more considerably pressure on England to secure all three points.
Roy Hodgson’s men only took a point from their opening match against Russia, who were beaten 2-1 by Slovakia on Wednesday, after conceding a stoppage-time equaliser.

Wales, meanwhile, secured all three points in their first major tournament match since 1958 with a 2-0 win over Slovakia.
Gareth Bale and Hal Robson-Kanu scored the goals in that one and the former has been in bullish mood all week ahead of one of the biggest matches of his career so far.
Bale, who won the Champions League with Real Madrid for a second time last month, stood by his comments that Wales are more patriotic than their English counterparts.
“It’s good that they bit,” the Welshman was quoted as saying by the Guardian this week. “I didn’t say they didn’t have pride or passion. In my opinion we have more. They probably will say the same. I’m happy with the comments. We’ve got a massive team spirit, the best I’ve seen. It’s just my opinion.”
Bale also cheekily commented that no English players would get into the current Wales team.
