Wrapping up Group A

And so we enter the last days of the group stage, following interesting developments in some groups that will keep these closing days quite interesting in terms of who reaches the knockout stage, and whether we will see some giants not making this next step.

Group A however seems largely decided, with Italy being one of three teams who remain unbeaten in the competition and leading the group in turn. They will face second-place Wales and unless they trounce Gareth Bale and co. — as they did with Turkey and Switzerland — the Welsh national team will follow them to the final phase from the group stage.

Switzerland and Turkey are third and last place in Group A, respectively, with the Swiss having a single point from their two matches and Turkey with none. The A-Team’s only chance of overcoming Wales is by beating Turkey, preferably with a large goal advantage, and rooting for Wales to lose handily to Italy so they can overcome the five-goal difference between themselves and the current second-place team in the group.
