BALE HOPES TO MAKE HIS IN­FLU­ENCE COUNT

The Real Madrid star has al­ready scored twice but hopes to fire Wales to another vic­tory to­day against Rus­sia. Bale said: “We’ve de­fended amaz­ingly but, if we get the ball down and play more, hope­fully I can in­flu­ence it a bit more.”

LE­WANDOWSKI HOPES TO BREAK HIS DUCK

Robert Le­wandowski hopes he can fi­nally find the back of the net and help Poland reach the last-16 in France. The Bay­ern Mu­nich striker said: “It would be good to get a goal, but I haven’t had any chances. I hope to score against Ukraine [to­mor­row], but more than that, I hope we win and go through.”
