Euro 2020 group A: results, final table and qualifiers

Italy, Wales and Switzerland reach the round of 16

Wales are through to the Euro 2020 round of 16 after finishing second behind group A winners Italy.

Despite a 1-0 loss in Rome against the Italians, Wales qualified as runners-up on goal difference ahead of Switzerland. The Swiss are also through as one of the four best third-placed teams.

Captain Gareth Bale told ITV Sport: “We knew it would be very difficult from the start. A lot of running and defending, I am proud of the boys. We have made it through. We had to dig deep and we did that. We have to recover now and take the break and get ready to get going again.”

After winning group A Italy will now play Austria at Wembley Stadium on 26 June. Finishing second means Wales head to Amsterdam to take on Denmark on 26 June. Third-placed Switzerland face France in Bucharest on 28 June.
