England and Wales are through to the next phase of the ongoing Euro 2016 Championships having secured the needed results to pull through.
England failed to make their chances pay as they were held to a goalless draw by Slovakia in Saint-Etienne on Monday night.
The Three Lions dominated possession and territory in their final Group B game of Euro 2016, but a lack of cutting edge in the final third saw them finish second behind Wales, who beat Russia 3-0 in Toulouse.
While the three lions were goal-shy the Welsh team were on top of their game, scoring two goals in the first half before Gareth Bale put the icing with one more goal in the second half.
As it stands England will face the runners-up of Group F, which contains Hungary, Iceland, Portugal and Austria.
While on their part, Wales will play one of the third placed teams yet to emerge.
Slovakia, meanwhile, finished in third position and are still in with a chance of reaching the knockout stages having avoided defeat against England for the first time in their history.
