Wales have qualified for the last 16 of Euro 2020 despite losing 1-0 to Italy in Rome.Matteo Pessina scored the 39th-minute winner as Italy topped Group A with a 100 per cent record and equalled their national record of 30 games unbeaten.Wales were forced to play the last 35 minutes with 10 men after Ethan Ampadu was shown a straight red card for a late challenge on Federico Bernardeschi.Switzerland had Welsh hearts racing by establishing a 2-0 interval lead against Turkey in Baku and trimming Wales’ goal difference advantage.The Swiss eventually won in 3-1, but it was not enough to leapfrog Wales and their qualification hopes now reside on being one of the four best third-placed sides.Wales instead will head to Amsterdam to play the runners-up of Group B, most likely Denmark, Finland or Russia.

The group first forged the link with the Umid Yeri orphanage when Wales met Azerbaijan in a world cup qualifier in 2002. Now, nearly two decades on, the bond has been strengthened further by the selection of Baku as the host for the side's first two Euro 2020 games. Report by Taylorjo.
