Wales 1 – Switzerland 1- Victory beyond reach for The Welsh at the Baku Olympic Stadium

Wales vs. Switzerland

Wales plays a 1-1 draw at the beginning of a new European Championship season against Switzerland. Today's result, leave both teams on 1 point and sitting in 2nd and 3rd positions respectively, after their first match.

After an un-eventful first half, Switzerland certainly were out of the blocks quickly in the second half, thanks to an early goal from Embolo in the 49th minute. In the end though, their lead was short lived, as Moore equalised for The Welsh, 74 minutes in and seeing the game end 1-1.

For Wales, Brooks and Ampadu, came on for James and Ramsey. Switzerland replaced Zakaria and Gavranovic with Shaqiri and Seferović.

There were bookings for Moore from Wales, and Schär and Mbabu, for Switzerland.

In the second round of action in the European Championship, both Switzerland and Wales will play away against Italy and Turkey respectively.
