Despite dominating possession, amazingly, England were 1-0 down to Wales at half time after a long range Gareth Bale free kick.

Roy Hodgson's men have since equalised through Jamie Vardy, but there is still a chance that England could be exiting the European Championships after the group stage.

If they do get dumped out, many fans will blame Joe Hart for his poor attempt at saving a well-struck free kick from Bale. Just like in Wales' opener, the Real Madrid star netted from long-range after being helped by some very suspect positioning from the opposition goalkeeper.

Unsurprisingly, people didn't hold back when criticising the England shot-stopper, with legendary German goalkeeper Oliver Kahn making an interesting point on Hart's use of the wall.
