Football News

Jamie Vardy came off the bench to snatch an equaliser and get England back into their second Euro 2016 group stage match against Wales.

The Leicester City striker scored 10 minutes after being thrown on by Roy Hodgson as a second-half substitute - and replays showed the assistant referee had made an excellent call to allow the goal.

It initially looked as if Vardy was offside; however, replays showed the ball had come off the head of Wales defender Ashley Williams, meaning the goal was correctly allowed to stand. (Scroll down this page to watch the video).

Gareth Bale had put Wales ahead with a 35-yard free-kick in the first half - Joe Hart really should have done better - but Vardy’s close-range finish put England back on level terms.

Daniel Sturridge, another, sub then scored the winning goal in stoppage time.
