Turkey vs Wales LIVE: Euro 2021 team news, lineups and latest build-up today

Euro 2020: Daily briefing

Follow live coverage as Turkey take on Wales in Euro 2020 Group A in Baku today.

Turkey stumbled out of the blocks in the tournament opener against Italy on Friday night with the Azzurri dominating proceedings and eventually easing away to a comfortable win. Much-fancied as a dark horse to do some damage in the competition, Turkey know they will have to be much better this afternoon if they are to deliver on their promise.

Wales also failed to win their first game but Kieffer Moore’s late header salvaged a point against Switzerland after a match where they rarely looked like getting one. Their hopes will again be led by captain Gareth Bale who will look to make his mark on the tournament after a quiet start with midfielder Aaron Ramsey also sure to be key.

Full time: Finland 0-1 Russia

Well, Russia take all three points with a 1-0 win over Finland in St Petersburg.

It was a cagey and quite frankly drab affair, but the Russians get their first positive result of the tournament with this win courtesy of Miranchuk’s brilliance.

All eyes on Belgium against Denmark, which takes place tomorrow.

Euro 2020: Turkey vs Wales

Wales’ last group stage defeat at a European Championships? That’s right, back in 2016 when they were undone by a last-minute Daniel Sturridge strike as England beat them 2-1.

Safe to say Wales had the last laugh at that particular tournament…

Euro 2020: Finland 0-1 Russia

90+3 mins: Good work from Golovin allows Kuzyayev to spin in behind but his low cross is hacked clear.

Russia have a chance to wrap up the win but Zhemaletdinov blazes wildly over the bar from inside the area.

That was a poor finish, but I’m not sure a composed bit of quality would suit this match. Miranchuk’s moment of magic feels very out of place.

Euro 2020: Finland 0-1 Russia

90+2 mins: Daniel O’Shaughnessy is booked as he fouls Alexander Sobolev, who is going to need some treatment here.

We’re seeing a cagey end to a ridiculously cagey and quite uninspired game of football.

Russia do need these three points though.

Euro 2020: Finland 0-1 Russia

89 mins: Georgi Dzhikiya is booked for a foul on Pyry Soiri to allow a free kick to Finland.

Finnish defender Arajuuri has a chance from a set piece, but his header loops rather tamely over Safonov’s crossbar.

Finland look quite tired now I must admit.

Euro 2020: Finland 0-1 Russia

87 mins: A dinked cross towards the backpost finds Sobolov, who tees up Zobnin but the midfielder blazes over.

Can Finland nick a late equaliser?

Euro 2020: Finland 0-1 Russia

85 mins: Dzyuba clatters into Joona Toivio as they go for the ball.

Looked painful but Toivio is OK and the game goes on.

Aleksandr Sobolov is on for the Russia captain while Maksim Mukhin replaces the goalscorer Miranchuk.
