    I still to this day cannot get my head around the fact we were in the semis of Euro 16!

    Funnily enough if Ramsay and Allen had played we might even have been in the final.....to be honest if Page sets the team up like Cooper does and tries not to lose we will probably be pulverised....there again we have nothing to lose..beat either Switzerland or Turkey and draw the other and we can lose to Italy and still qualify for the knock out stages...

    Can't wait !!!

    Really nervous, but have hope that our starting lineup will be hugely improved than what we got against Albania.

    We started without Connor, Cabango, Rodon, Bale, Dan James, Harry Wilson, Kieffer Moore. Many of those will start and I feel we'll be quite strong really.

    I think it's vital we don't lose the first match as it puts huge pressure on any team who loses the first round.

    I really don't see any reason why we aren't capable of beating Switzerland.

    COME ON WALES !!

    Agree with you Mono....let’s go out to win the first game and breed the confidenc3 to go on and on....too many teams play not to lose the first games and then come unstuck

    It's a massive deal not just for the Welsh fans but also the players. They won't be involved in many tournaments like this, so I hope they play with freedom and pride and give it everything.

    I too would like the team to be set up to at least play on the counter and really go for it. The way we started against France was really promising (thanks Ref!)

    So Italy have claimed 3 dubious penalties according to the commentators...but would England have accepted that they weren’t?
    Wales can do the Turks if they are brave and attack with pace....Italy is a different prospect and Wales can’t be slow and make too many mistakes on the ballot especially at the back....

    Quality goal that. Going to be a tough one against the Italians.
