Lens, Ramadan 11, 1437, Jun 16, 2016, SPA -- Halftime substitute Daniel Sturridge scored an injury-time winner to give England a 2-1 come-from-behind victory over Wales at the European Championship.
England had fallen behind after Gareth Bale scored from a long-distance free kick in the 42nd minute. But England coach Roy Hodgson brought on Jamie Vardy and Sturridge at halftime in an aggressive move to get more finishing power up front.
Vardy scored the equalizer, pouncing on a misdirected defensive clearance in the 56th minute with just his third touch. Sturridge muscled his way into the box to score the winning goal in the first minute of stoppage time, AP reported.
