Wales need a point against Italy in Rome tonight to guarantee a place in the last 16 at Euro 2020.

Robert Page’s side sit on four points in Group A after a superb victory over Turkey in their second match and that tally will almost certainly be enough to take them through already, as one of the best third-placed teams at least.

Italy have been arguably the tournament’s most impressive team so far, securing qualification with back-to-back 3-0 wins over Switzerland and Turkey.

Date, kick-off time and venue

Italy vs Wales is scheduled for a 5pm BST kick-off today (Sunday, June 20, 2021).

The match will be held at the Stadio Olimpico in Rome.

Italy vs Wales team news

Roberto Mancini is unlikely to risk captain Giorgio Chiellini even if he is fit after being forced off early in the win over Switzerland, but Marco Veratti is likely to feature after missing the first two games as he recovers from injury.

With their place in the last 16 already secure, Mancini could rotate, with the likes of Federico Chiesa and Andrea Belotti options.

Wales boss Robert Page has suggested he could rotate his side as he looks to manage the workload of several players who have not played consistently for their clubs this season.
