Literally makes no sense why they threw the flares when they did. Cost their team a win and they'll now get a fine. When that flare exploded was like a scene from Saving Private Ryan.

I imagine that the result was the not the most important thing to the protesters. That's the thing about protests, they work best when they're inconvenient.

I've been to Wales vs Russia and Wales vs England and there was 0 trouble at both. Fans from both nations mingling fine with one another. I've been to Football League games with more edge to them than both of those games. Two of the friendliest I've ever attended.

I was at all 3 of ours and it was only the Russia game where there was trouble. English and Welsh fans were like best mates all day it certainly wasn't like the trips to Cardiff and Swansea.but tbf that is generally the usual tournament feel barring the odd game. Was very surprised how few Wales fans were there though, apart from there 5k allocation I bet there wasn't more than a couple of hundred in the ground.

There were more than a couple of hundred extra.

I guess the reason would be that there are 50m English people and 3m Welsh people. There'd be more English people who were willing to put the effort into getting tickets. Also, I know a few Welsh people who decided to go to Bordeaux/Toulouse instead as their experience of English football fans hasn't always been a positive one.

Obviously there was going to be more of us but I expected more Welsh in the ground. Certainly didn't look like more than 200 when you scored you wouldn't of seen as you will of been going mad. You made a cracking atmosphere though and glad you respected our anthem which you certainly don't at the millennium, we respected yours too which I was also glad about. Good luck on Saturday i reckon you should have enough to beat n.ireland I had tickets but can't be arsed going out tommorrow so just doing a day trip to nice on Monday now. You have a great chance of reaching the semis I think if not the final.
