Join us for live updates from All the day’s European Championship fixtures, including the latest news from the decks & TV response
This brings us to the end of our coverage of the first day of the last group stage matches at Euro 2020 then.
It’s farewell to Turkey and the time to place Switzerland on ice hockey but for Italy and Wales, the velvet rope was lifted to admit them into the knockout stages.
They’ll learn just who they perform tomorrow too, and we are going to have all the live coverage you could request right here. Until then however, thank you for joining us good night!
Rob Page has confessed that Wales’ defeat did not unfurl how he planned it to only now, speaking with BBC Radio Wales after reserving a knockout spot in his first major tournament.
“It did not really go to plan the press at the first half,” he says. “We dealt with it at half-time and we managed to get Ethan Ampadu as the middle of the diamond and put him on the ball slightly more at the beginning of the second half.
“The sending-off altered the course of this match. I have not seen it yet. I thought it was unpleasant to get a booking except to see the red card come out was unbelievable. Then of course it’s an even bigger hill to climb”
With four things now from three matches, Switzerland would be the top-ranked third-place side at Euro 2020 – but should they remain there in the conclusion of play on Wednesday?
Presently, Portugal, Austria and Finland all sit behind them together with three points apiece, while Spain and Croatia round out the record with two and one respectively.
That is not even including the other hand who might nevertheless vault themselves into place.
Robert Mancini had nothing but kind words for his opponents after Italy prevailed in Rome, but the Azzurri boss feels his team were the better side on the day, he tells ITV.
“We’re happy, we’re happy,” he states. “But after the group stage, it’s a new contest.
“The men are very smart. They would like to win each game. They’ve a good mentality. We changed eight, but played with an excellent game. Wales are a good group, it was rather difficult to win, but I think we needed to win.”
While Wales will anticipate their destiny in Amsterdam – hoping likely that Belgium don’t get tripped up tomorrow to set up another meeting with the Red Devils, five years on from a shock victory – Italy will pack their bags for the first time in this tournament.
They are off to Wembley, for one of 2 last-16 ties to be held in London, and they’ll be facing the runner-up from Group C there.
The Netherlands have sealed top spot there, while North Macedonia are out – so it will likely be between Ukraine and Austria for the Azzurri at England.
