Wales confront Turkey


Wales and Turkey meet at the Baku Olympic Stadium in Azerbaijan in a huge Euro 2020 contest on matchday two in Group A on Wednesday.

Rob Page accepted that Wales were somewhat fortunate to come away from their match against Switzerland on Saturday with a potentially vital point.

Page's big selection calls ultimately paid off against Switzerland, with Ward and Moore justifying their starting spots.

The interim Wales boss also elected to revert to a back four, as opposed to the back three used in the warm-up games, and that will likely remain the case here.

Harry Wilson is pushing for a recall in attack, with that selection call possibly depending on whether Aaron Ramsey can play twice in quick succession.

Ethan Ampadu and David Brooks, introduced from the bench against Switzerland, are two others pushing for recalls to the starting lineup on Wednesday.

As for Turkey, Gunes will surely be tempted to make some changes on the back of the heavy loss to Italy, with his side providing very little attacking threat.

Cengiz Under, Irfan Can Kahveci and KaanAyhan are all in contention to return to the side, but Burak Yilmaz is expected to retain his place up top.

OzanKabak was an unused substitute against Italy, though CaglarSoyuncu and Demiral seem likely to get the nod at centre-back once again.
