Euro 2020 group A: fixtures, results and squads

Robert Page’s Wales face Turkey, Italy and Switzerland

Wales have a tough group at the Euros and they will go into the tournament without Ryan Giggs on the touchline. Giggs has stood aside after being charged with assaulting two women and Robert Page will assume the role of manager.  

The Football Association of Wales (FAW) confirmed that Page will be assisted by Albert Stuivenberg and Kit Symons. 

Group A fixtures will be played at the Stadio Olimpico in Rome, Italy, and the Olympic Stadium in Baku, Azerbaijan.
