Euro 2020: Who made your Wales starting XI for Sunday’s game against Italy?


Moore, Page, Davies
Robert Page has named the same line-up for both Wales’ group games so far – but has to weigh up his options to face Italy
Venue: Stadio Olimpico, Rome Date: Sunday, 20 June Kick-off: 17:00 BST
Coverage: Live on S4C, live commentary on BBC Radio 5 Live, BBC Radio Wales and Radio Cymru, the BBC Sport website and app, plus live text and score updates

We asked you to put yourselves in Robert Page’s shoes and pick Wales’ starting line-up for Sunday’s final Euro 2020 Group A match in Rome.

The Wales manager may be considering changes for the first time in the tournament but your message is clear – go full strength.

A point in Rome would be enough for Wales to secure second place in Group A and earn them a second-round match in Amsterdam against the Group B runners-up on 26 June.

If Wales can end Italy’s 29-game unbeaten run they would win the group and play their next game at Wembley on the same day against Group C’s runners-up.

The only change in thinking from the side BBC Sport readers wanted to see in Wales’ second group game is at right-back where Connor Roberts, who scored in the 2-0 win over Turkey, has won you over. The Swansea City defender gets your vote this time rather than Liverpool’s Neco Williams.

That means your team is almost identical to the XI which Page chose for both group games so far.

The one difference comes in midfield, where once again you would prefer Ethan Ampadu over Joe Morrell, a player who featured in all 180 minutes of the games in Baku.

Harry Wilson also came close to making your starting line-up in the latest poll.

Whilst Page opted for 4-2-3-1 in both the win over Turkey and the opening 1-1 draw with Switzerland only 10% of you would opt for that formation. More than 68% would still go 4-3-3.

So despite Chris Mepham, Ben Davies and Kieffer Moore being one yellow card away from suspension, and Italy – already qualified after two wins – expected to rest a number of players, this is the Wales side you would liked to see kick-off in the Stadio Olimpico.
