48 Joe Allen passes, two Danny Ward saves, two Martin Skrtel red cards avoided.
Joe Allen can pass a football.
We knew this already, but now Europe knows too.
The beautiful human being completed 87.5% of his 48 passes as Wales beat Slovakia 2-1 to register their first even win at a European Championship.
Slovakia dominated possession with 57%, but Allen ensured his side were not overrun.
No Welshman made more passes that Allen, who also worked tirelessly without the ball.
Meanwhile, fellow Red Danny Ward looked composed on his first start for Wales. The 22-year-old goalkeeper could do nothing to stop Duda’s low shot on the hour, but he did make two decent saves, as well as many confident catches.
Gareth Bale and Hal Robson-Kanu scored the goals for Wales, either side of Duda’s equaliser.
Liverpool were also represented on the losing side, with Martin Skrtel captaining Slovakia.
Skrtel was shown a yellow card late on for a rash tackle on Ben Davies, but he could have seen red.
In fact, Skrtel perhaps should have been sent off earlier in the game when he elbowed Jonny Williams in the penalty area.
Wales go top of Group B with their victory, ahead of tonight’s second game between England and Russia.
Adam Lallana starts for England, with Nathaniel Clyne, Jordan Henderson, James Milner and Daniel Sturridge on the bench.
