Hello and Welcome to the Live Updates of the Live Updates of the 4th match of Euro 2016, and the scene shifts to Marseille. England and Russia have never played each other in the European Championships. Germany, Portugal and France: These are some of the opponents that the new-look England have beaten in the recent past and that has sent the nation into believing that they can go all the way in this competition. There is good blend of big tournament experience and youthful exuberence in the ranks of the English side. Russia on the other hand, have a lot of catching up to do and have been plauged by injuries coming into the tournament.

England will be relying on  their lethal striker, Harry Kane to pump the goals in. Kane has an excellent supporting cast in his Tottenham Hotspur teammate, Delle Alli and the wide players, who are both hard runners. It will be interesting to see how they fare here. Skipper Wayne Rooney will be playing in the middle of the park and will get the chance to dictate play and spray passes, a role he did very well for Manchester United.

Russia are banking on their CSKA Moscow core to take the team through. Aleksandrar Kokorin is expected to lead the line for Russia but there are a lot of injury concerns. England are overwhelming favourites to win this game but that is on paper. The real battle begins after kick-off.
