Wales and Crystal Palace goalkeeper Wayne Hennessey has his sights set on facing England next Thursday after missing yesterday’s win over Slovakia due to a back spasm.
"It just happens every so often, it’s quite common. It’s just one of those things, it’s a quick turnaround that you go from broken to mended in about 24 hours," revealed the 29-year-old. "I hope to be in contention because I always like playing against England. It’s a massive game and a massive occasion for us." His absence afforded Liverpool back-up stopper Danny Ward his first senior start having previously only appeared twice in friendly games totalling 88 minutes. Despite a shaky beginning to the Group B opener, Wales were lucky not to be 1-0 down thanks in the main to a fantastic goal bound clearance by James Chester, Hennessey grew into the match as Wales eked a narrow 2-1 win when substitute Hal Robson-Kanu scuffed Aaron Ramsey’s pass beyond the helpless Matus Kozacik with less than 10 minutes remaining.
