Northern Ireland take on Wales this afternoon in the Euro 2016 last 16 tie. This means that Oliver Norwood of Northern Ireland will be up against fellow Royal Chris Gunter of Wales in the huge game in France.

Although there are rumours that neither of these two players will be at Reading next season, it’s worth mentioning that it’s very rare to see two championship players for the same team playing against each other at a major international competition.

Hal Robson-Kanu, who is techniqually still contracted to Reading despite not having his contract renewed, is on the bench for Wales

Wales are certainly the favourites with the likes of Ramsey, Bale and Ashley Williams in their ranks, whilst Northern Ireland will be over the moon that they’ve made it so far.

Good luck to them both and let the best team win
