Despite suffering a heart-wrenching 2-1 loss to England, a dejected Gareth Bale on Thursday insisted that Wales will ‘keep fighting all the way’ to secure a berth in the knockout stages of the Euro 2016.

The Real Madrid star striker scored his second goal of the tournament to put his Welsh team ahead with a stunning free-kick from 30 yards in the 42nd minute.

However, England coach Roy Hodgson decision to replace Raheem Sterling and Harry Kane with James Vardy and Sturridge respectively at half time turned out to be crucial.

While Leicester City star striker Vardy netted a scrappy equaliser ten minutes after the break, Sturridge snatched the victory two minutes before the final whistle.
