It’s not very often that England play Wales in a football tournament, and it’s not very often that I’m in Thaxted. The planets all aligned and thus I found myself in the Maypole pub watching the Euro 2016 group stage game. I grew up watching the rugby and not the football, and also supporting Wales as my dad’s side of the family have Welsh heritage, so discretion was needed for a few hours at least. Wales went ahead in the first half but England scored an equaliser in the second half, which is what you can hear here. Eventually England went on to win with a last minute goal to make it 2-1… pft.
