Wales v Slovakia

Wales v Slovakia



Wales v Slovakia (Kick-off 5.00pm). Gary Lineker presents coverage of the opening game in Group B, which takes place at the Nouveau Stade de Bordeaux, as both sides begin their first-ever European Championship campaigns. Chris Coleman's Welsh side came through a tough qualifying group to reach the finals, finishing as runners-up to Belgium, and their star player - Real Madrid winger Gareth Bale - will be keen to make his mark on the international stage in this tournament. They face a tough test in this first match, however, as they come up against a Slovakia side featuring the likes of Liverpool defender Martin Skrtel and Napoli playmaker and captain Marek Hamsik. The Slovakians also finished in second place in their qualification group, losing out on top spot to two-time reigning European champions Spain, despite a famous 2-1 victory over the Spaniards early on in the campaign. Wales have the eagerly anticipated `Battle of Britain' with England to look forward to in their next match, while Slovakia take on Russia in Lille on Wednesday afternoon. With commentary by Steve Wilson and Robbie Savage, analysis by Dean Saunders, Rio Ferdinand and Alan Shearer, and additional pitchside presentation from Jason Mohammad and John Hartson.
