Wales have not had the best of qualifiers and just prior to the start of the tournament, manager Ryan Giggs found himself embroiled in a legal case and the Wales board appointed Rob Page as his replacement on a temporary basis. Opponents Switzerland are in fine form on the contrary with wins in their six games. Euro 2020 Day 2 Schedule: Today's Match With Kick-Off Time in IST, Upcoming Fixtures.
