Wales fans have gathered around their TVs to watch the national side take on Switzerland in their first Euro 2020 match today.

Supporters rushed to the pubs to see Gareth Bales’ men take on the continental opposition in Baku, Azerbaijan, from 2pm.

A group of five wore their dragon-coated shirts with pride as they sat at the Wales’ fan zone at Vale Sport Arena in Cardiff.

But some 300 hardcore Welshmen ignored the government’s travel advice and made the 3,000-mile trek across the world for the game.

Two fans smiled as they clutched their beers in the sun at the Baku Olympic Stadium after making the mammoth journey.

Former England striker and Match of the Day presenter Gary Lineker wished the side good luck this afternoon, tweeting: ‘Pob lwc @Cymru.’

In a promo clip ahead of the match, Wales’s official Twitter showed off the ‘rugged’ landscape and asked fans if they were having ‘pre-match goosbumps’.
