  • Wales joined England and Scotland to become the third international playing nation on 25th March 1876 when they took on Scotland in Glasgow. They wouldn't face England for another three years losing 2-1 at the Oval. In 1883 they formed the Home Championship with England, Scotland and Ireland, a competition which ran for 100 years. Wales won twelve times and shared the trophy on a further five occasions.
    Wales last qualified for a major tournament in 1958 where they drew all of their group games but eventually lost out in the quarter-finals to Brazil.
    Only Scotland have played England more times in international football and Wales and Scotland are the only countries that England have played over 100 games against. Since the end of the Home Championship, England and Wales have met in both European Championship Qualification and World Cup Qualification with England winning all four games.
    Wales meet England in the group stages of Euro '16 which will be the 102nd meeting.
