Wales vs Switzerland LIVE: Euro 2020 result and reaction today


Countdown to Euro 2020: Daily briefing

Wales took on Switzerland in Baku on Saturday afternoon on day two of Euro 2020.

The fixture follows Italy’s win over Turkey in Rome last night – another Group A meeting – with Wales hoping they can start strong and go on to match their semi-final run from Euro 2016, though they know they face a tough task in doing so. Switzerland, meanwhile, made it to the last 16 in Paris five years ago, before falling to Poland in a penalty shootout.

This is a crucial game for both sides, who will know that one win may be enough to secure safe passage through to the first knockout round as one of the competition’s four best third-placed finishers.

Wales are relying on captain and Real Madrid winger Gareth Bale throughout the tournament, who spent last season on loan at his old club Tottenham, as well as Juventus midfielder Aaron Ramsey. Interim coach Robert Page, standing in for Ryan Giggs, can also call upon the likes of Manchester United winger Dan James and Spurs full-back Ben Davies.

Switzerland, meanwhile, need Arsenal midfielder Granit Xhaka and Liverpool’s Xherdan Shaqiri to be firing on all cylinders here and in the Swiss’ remaining group fixtures.

90+2 mins: There’s five minutes of added time to play. Mbabu makes a run through the middle and slots it into the box for Gavranovic who shoots. The ball is heading for the far corner but ward leaps across and tips the ball wide of the far post. Then the offside flag goes up against Gavranovic.

Euro 2020: SAVE! Danny Ward denies Embolo at the death

Euro 2020: GOAL! Wales 1 – 2 Switzerland (Gavranovic)

85 mins: Goal! Heartbreak for Wales. Or is it? VAR needs to come to the rescue. Mario Gavranovic has just replaced Haris Seferovic for Switzerland. He sets himself up in the centre of the box as Schar picks out Embolo. He heads it to Gavranovic who slots it coolly into the back of the net. But was he offside?

Euro 2020: Wales 1 – 1 Switzerland

82 mins: Oh Wales! Wonderful play from Wales almost sees Aaron Ramsey in at the back post. A bouncing ball in midfield drops to Joe Allen who passes it up to Gareth Bale before continuing his run into the box. Bale gives it back to him and Allen drills it low towards the back post. Ramsey sprints through the area and throws himself at the pass but it narrowly evades it and goes wide.
