Updated on Thursday 16 June 2016 by @TVNewsroom

Day 7 of Euro 2016 takes place today with the eagerly anticipated Group B clash between the Home Nations, England and Wales

The contest takes place at the Stade Bollaert-Delelis in Lens, and will be shown live on BBC One and BBC One HD.

This fixture is arguably the most exciting game of the group stage on paper, and takes on extra significance following Wales’ 2-1 victory over Slovakia last time out, and England’s 1-1 draw with Russia.

England have the edge in recent games between these nations having won the last four, during qualification for the 2006 World Cup and 2012 European Championship respectively.

However, Chris Coleman’s Wales team are certainly no longer considered minnows as they once were, with Real Madrid winger Gareth Bale their most potent threat and the likes of Arsenal midfielder Aaron Ramsey and Swansea City captain Ashley Williams also in their ranks.

Coverage starts at 1pm on BBC Two before switching to BBC One at 1.30pm. The match will also be streamed live on the BBC.co.uk/sport website

Gary Lineker will be joined in the studio by Rio Ferdinand and Alan Shearer, while match commentary comes from Guy Mowbray, Martin Keown and Robbie Savage.

Kick-off 2.00pm

Northern Ireland are also in action today as they face Ukraine in Group C at the Stade de Lyon, live on ITV.

Norman Whiteside, Lee Dixon, Craig Bellamy and Glenn Hoddle will join Mark Pougatch in the ITV studio, while match commentary comes from Joe Speight and Iain Dowie.

Kick-off 5.00pm

The final match of the day comes from the Stade de France in Paris as Germany take on Poland in the other Group C match.

This time Mark will be joined by Slaven Bilic, Lothar Matthaus, Ian Wright and Peter Crouch, while Sam Matterface and Andy Townsend provide match commentary.

Kick-off 8.00pm
