Gervais Martel, Lens president
I will attend all the games at the Bollaert-Delelis, but I have a special interest in England v Wales – it looks like a classic rugby test match. It is a game that will attract thousands of fans. It could be Wayne Rooney's last international tournament and up against him will be Gareth Bale – it will be rocking in Lens.
