Wales get their Euro 2020 campaign underway this afternoon as they take on Switzerland.

This Group A games, staged at the Olympic Stadium in Baku, Azerbaijan, will be shown live on BBC One and BBC One HD.

Wales are entering their second consecutive European Championship, having never previously qualified before their memorable debut appearance in 2016.

They emerged top of a group also containing England, Slovakia and Russia, and defeated Northern Ireland in the last 16 before an unforgettable victory over heavy favourites Belgium in the quarter-finals.

Chris Coleman’s team eventually succumbed to Cristiano Ronaldo and Portugal in the semi-finals, but their remarkable run to the last four will live long in the memory for their fans.

Switzerland have qualified for their fifth European Championship, and will be looking to make it to the knockout rounds for the second consecutive time.

They pushed Poland hard in the last 16 in 2016, but eventually lost 5-4 on penalties.

Arsenal’s Granit Xhaka was the only player to miss in the shootout, with Grzegorz Krychowiak scoring the winning spot-kick for the Poles.

Mark Hughes and Ashley Williams will join Gabby Logan from 1.15pm. Match commentary comes from Steve Wilson and Robbie Savage.

Kick-off 2.00pm.

The match will also be shown on Welsh language channel S4C from 1.45pm, where Dylan Ebenezer presents.

The BBC will also show Denmark v Finland from 4.20pm today, while ITV airs the final game of the day which sees Belgium host Russia from 7.00pm.
