Wales welcome Turkey to the Olympic Stadium in Baku at Euro 2020 on Wednesday.

The 3-0 loss was arguably flattering for this young Turkish team, and they need a positive result against Wales to stand a chance of progressing.

Wales drew 1-1 with Switzerland in their opening game, with Kieffer Moore’s header snatching a point for the Dragons after Breel Embolo had opened the scoring.

Here’s everything you need to know about the match:
