England had more pride, apparently. Roy Hodgson started a poor lineup, or made brilliant substitutions. One substitute Jamie Vardy scored the first goal. Another substitute Daniel Sturridge scored the second goal above to beat Wales 2-1. He added his trademark stupid dance celebration for emphaiss.
Massive narrative swing for England. They now enter their final match with Slovakia leading Group B, where they were expected to be. Incredibly, that’s the first time England has earned a tournament result after trailing at halftime since the 1958 World Cup.
