Jamie Clark, Sports Editor | June 20, 2016

19:56 Goodbye. I’m leaving you now. Enjoy the game and thanks for spending the build-up to a massive game with Coral.

Hope you can join us next time for some live blog antics!

19:51 Memory lane…

Teams will be on their way out in St-Etienne again soon!

19:42 Bale’s real deal:

A final enhanced matchday special plug!

19:30 Woah, bad betty… Please bet responsibly folks!

Coral re proud to be part of the responsible betting partnership. When the fun stops, stop!

19:23 Celebrate good times come on!

Not with my back…

19:12 Vardy party? Another enhanced odds matchday special for you to ponder. Please bet responsibly, up to €/£20 on this one through mobile and online:

19:05 Shearer says… A lot of things I know, but what changes would Alan have made if he were Hodgson? Worth a watch:

19:00 One hour warning! Just 60 minutes until kick-off, punters!

18:55 More team news! Sam Vokes leads the Welsh line!

18:52 Team news! Hodgson does make those six changes:

18:47 Things that make you go hmm…

Food for thought.

18:40 Ah, Mr Preview. How are you? With kick-off coming up in around an hour and 20 minutes, here’s another look at what our expert tipsters believe to be the best bets for England’s final Euro 2016 group game:

18:32 Shearer says…

18:24 Slovakia v England betting. Fancy a flutter on the big game tonight?

18:12 Matthaus in the house!

Best wishes from one of Germany’s all-time greats? That’s put the mockers on it, or has it?

18:03 Shearer says… A word or two on Wales from Alan:

17:54 Have your say:

It’s a gamble alright if the rumours are true, Craig.

17:45 Roy of the Rotisserie…

Delicious to any meat-eaters out there, Stuart.

17:40 Another price boost!

17:30 Have your say:

Lots of buzzing Three Lions supporters in St-Etienne, Stephen.

17:26 Have your say:

Like what you did there, Charlie, but will Leicester City title winner Danny Drinkwater be watching somewhere and thinking what might have been?

17:17 A sight for sore eyes on Periscope. As promised, here’s our very own John Hill drinking in the atmosphere:

17:11 Pre-match Periscope More live build-up with the England supporters hoving into view on Coral’s Periscope soon:

17:08 Pick up a Penguin? Think we’ve got Paul the Octopus and his proficient predictions to thank for this:

17:03 Shearer says… Coral ambassador and BBC pundit Alan talks about England v Slovakia with under three hours until kick-off:

16:57 Have your say:

Right, OK Mark. Some diplomacy on your part may be needed if Rooney’s absence is taken as an insult by your hosts (see 15:45 entry).

16:53 Have your say:

Ambitious of you, Andrew.

16:45 St-Etienne again… While we’re on the subject of nostalgia:

“It’s still Michael Owen. He’s scored a wonderful goal!”

16:41 It was 20 years ago…

Time flies.

16:35 Matchday special alert! Nice boosted price available below on Wales:

16:29 Lions on a plane… Just doesn’t have the same ring to it as the Samuel L Jackson movie, but we appreciate the below sentiments, Keisha:

16:25 Cult commentary meets Clint Eastwood…

16:20 J’adore le score! Another reminder if you bet £10 on the correct score market in Slovakia v England at Euro 2016 and your selection loses, you get your money back as a free bet token!

16:08 Blast from the past… Isn’t that former Final Score pundit Gavin Peacock?

Heard he’d left football and went in training for the priesthood. Judging by his other tweets, he’s a pastor in Canada now. Let’s hope England don’t need divine intervention tonight…

16:04 Have your say. You and us all Reece:

15:59 What you can see through the Periscope… Your friend and mine, John Hill of Coral, taking in the pre-match atmosphere:

15:50 Play nicely… England supporters limber up in St-Etienne, peacefully:

15:45 An “insult” to rest Rooney? Henry Winter seems to think Slovakia might be offended…

Let’s hope Martin Skrtel doesn’t take it out on anyone!

15:37 Wilshere, the mane man? The wordplay and puns are just rife today. Maybe, it’s the only way to relieve the tension…

15:30 Permutations, permutations, permutations… Put simply, if England and Wales both win their final Euro 2016 Group B battles, then they will both be through the knockout phase.

A draw will take the Three Lions through, but would leave the Dragons waiting to see if they’ve made it, especially if Slovakia defeat Hodgson’s team. It should still be enough for Chris Coleman’s crew, though.

And defeats, well that’s too dire to contemplate!

15:23 Henderson: hero or villain? That’s one intense plea, Matt:

15:18 Have your say… You’re not the only one, Fraser:

15:08 If Carlsberg did England games…

15:02 Don’t go, Mr Preview! With less than five hours until kick-off, here’s a first look at our tipsters’ betting preview for Slovakia v England:

14:51 I am the Walrus… What did I just say about wordplay? Couldn’t resist:

14:46 Bale brilliance… More from Alan Shearer now, and the Coral ambassador has plenty to say on Wales’ star turn. They play Russia in Toulouse, and whether they can afford to lose remains to be seen. I’ll keep the material better than pithy wordplay:

14:38 Competition time! Answers on a postcard, or the more equivalent – take part on Twitter:

14:27 Lions have got your back… It’s behind you, Jack:

14:23 Bet responsibly… Coral are proud to be part of the responsible betting partnership, so when the fun stops, stop!

14:20 What a wincast! A shameless plug, but Gareth Bale has scored in both Euro 2016 group games so far:

14:15 What’s the Story, Morning Glory? Our very own Irish rose Nicola McGeady with the Coral Morning Report from earlier:

14:08 What’s the score? A nice little promotion we’re running for you now, and some insurance if betting in the correct score market:

14:04 Shearer says… better late than never! A word or two from Coral’s football ambassador Alan Shearer on a tournament that’s been littered with late goals so far:

14:00 Ch-ch-ch-ch-changes? Some strongly rumoured alterations to Roy Hodgson’s starting line-up this evening. Half-a-dozen to be exact:

13:56 Hello! Good afternoon everyone, and welcome to Coral’s live build-up coverage to England’s final Euro 2016 Group B fixture against Slovakia.

Right up until the 20:00 BST kick-off time in St-Etienne, we’ll have all the latest offers, betting opportunities, comment and analysis!
