Panini Wales 2016

Euro 2016 is an historical event for UK and Ireland, as they will be represented by England, Wales, Ireland, and Northern Ireland. To celebrate this event Panini published official campaign sticker albums for these four National teams. We present here the one dedicated to Wales, but Ireland and Northern Ireland have a very similar one. For England it was released also an official sticker album few months before.
The album opens with the introductory section "Together. Stronger". Here there are five stickers on one page: the Federation logo (shining sticker), the Cardiff City Stadium, The team photo (two stickers), and the National team coach Chris Coleman. The album then includes the "Wales squad" with 36 stickers (on four pages) of players that are part of the National team. Then the collection goes deeper into the squad presenting 20 players in more details. Each player is shown on one page with characteristics, history, and six stickers: player portrait (shining sticker) and five action stickers (two individuals, one horizontal, and one photo composed by two stickers). The list of the 20 players included is the following: Hennessey, Fon Williams, Gunter, Richards, Collins, Ashley Williams, Chester, Taylor, Davies, Cotterill, Allen, King, Ramsey, Ledley, Edwards, George Williams, Bale, Robson-Kanu, Church, and Vokes.

Inside the album there are also two sections "The Road to France" with the successfull campaign during the qualification stage. In total there are 22 action stickers displaced over four pages.

The section "Campaign Heroes" includes 12 stickers on two pages with the most remarkable and effective players during the campaign. Two of these stickers are shining: the shot stopper Hennessey and the star striker Robson-Kanu.

Last page of the album wishes "Bon Voyage" to the team with a nine sticker puzzle of celebrations.
