All you need to know about the first round of the UEFA EURO 2020 round of 16 ties, Wales Vs Denmark.
On Saturday, June 26 at 09:45 NST, Wales will face Denmark in the first round of the UEFA EURO 2020 round of 16 tie in Amsterdam.
Wales were on a high after a fine 2-0 victory over Turkey to follow up their opening draw with Switzerland. Even if they lost to Italy in the final Group, they had a great season.
After reaching the semi-finals in 2016, they will be confident that they can make an impact in the knockout stage again.
After losing their first two Group B matches, Denmark was effectively playing knockout football on Matchday 3.
That proved to be Kasper Hjulmand’s men’s undoing as they thrashed Russia 4-1, and they will hope to maintain that momentum in their first UEFA EURO 2020 match away from the Parken Stadium.
