Chris Coleman seemed to have a joke at England's expense when Wales held an open training session on Wednesday.
England assistant manager Ray Lewington appeared to give away Roy Hodgson's formation for the opening Euro 2016 game with Russia when he was pictured walking through Chantilly on Tuesday.

They notes seemed to suggest that England would start with Harry Kane, Dele Alli and Wayne Rooney in a Christmas tree formation.
And Coleman was pictured carrying his own clipboard complete with the Wales 'team' at their Dinard base in Brittany.

The Wales team for their Euro 2016 opener with Slovakia on Saturday read: Banks, Cafu, Carlos Alberto, Beckenbauer, Moore, Best, Socrates, Charlton, Zico, Pele, Maradona.
Coleman understandably would have been delighted if he could have sent that team out in its prime. But, for now it seems, he is just happy to poke fun at his Group B rivals.
