We had a draw against Switzerland and then we had to play against Scotland. Talking about motivation, you couldnt get more motivation than playing Scotland. England v Wales: Past meetings How have the Three Lions fared in previous meetings against The Dragons? I knew in the first 10, 15, 25 minutes that the Scots would come and hit us like a brick wall. They played really, really well for the opening 30 minutes, but for the rest of the game it went well for us, especially in the second half. The main thing you must make sure of is that you dont lose the opening match. Once you lose, everybody gets a bit nervy, so youve got to hold your nerve. They didnt want to lose the first game, they will want to be winning from the second game onwards. Eric Dier (C) stunning free-kick was cancelled out by Vasili Berezutskis header We had Scotland which was a tough game and of course we had the Netherlands and Spain, so the first game was helpful that we did draw.

You find that every team wants to get a point on the board after the opening game so theyve got something they can be happy about and take that into the second game.

They have to keep themselves to themselves, let other people do the talking and well do all the action. I think we can look forward to some good results.

Its good to see, little by little, using fastball and changeup at the same time. Its good to know when you need them theyll be there." Beeler was about as good as Gonzalez. Called up from Triple-A Iowa as the 26th man, he pitched four-hit ball while allowing an unearned run in six innings. Beeler also singled in his first at-bat when he lined the first pitch he saw up the middle in the third, drawing big cheers from the crowd. "I was a lot calmer than what I thought Id be," he said.
