first_img[dropcap]P[/dropcap]rofit yesterday when the England handicap bet was landed in their match against San Marino.All eyes on Wales this afternoon as they take on Israel at 5pm and the Welsh are odds on to do something they have never done before – win qualification to the European Championship.Ironically, Israel were also their opponents 57 years ago when the Wales team qualified for the World Cup in Sweden.Chris Coleman’s resurgent side (better than England if the latest FIFA rankings are to be believed) will qualify with a win today with the luxury of two games to spare. They currently top Group B on 17 points but crucially a win for Israel would see them with a chance of moving into second so there’s still plenty at stake. They will take considerable confidence though from the fact they have already beaten Israel comfortably – 3-0 in March in the reverse leg in Israel when the home side had Eitan Tibi sent off after 51 minutes.I did enjoy the tweet saying the Wales starting XI was:Bale, Not Bale, Not Bale, Not Bale, Not Bale, Not Bale, Not Bale, Not Bale, Not Bale, Not Bale, Not Bale.The ACTUAL Wales starting XI is:01 Hennessey02 Gunter06 Williams18 Davies04 Richards07 Edwards08 King03 Taylor10 Ramsey11 Bale09 Robson-KanuWales v IsraelUEFA EURO 2016 Qualifier5pm LIVE ON SKYIn terms of a bet nothing stands out strongly.
