Summary

Albania v Switzerland (Kick-off 2.00pm). Dan Walker presents coverage of the opening Group A match for both teams, which takes place at Stade Bollaert-Delelis in Lens. This will be the first appearance at an international tournament in Albania's history, and was made possible after they finished second in their qualifying group behind Portugal but ahead of Denmark, Serbia and Armenia. They begin their campaign against a nation they have failed to beat in six previous attempts, drawing once and losing five times in that sequence. Switzerland are appearing at the Euros for the fourth time, and the first since they served as co-hosts with Austria in 2008. They will be looking to improve on their lamentable performances at that tournament, when they finished bottom of their group with a record of one win and two losses, but having won seven of their qualifying matches to book their place in France, they will be confident of progressing to the knockout stage for the first time. With commentary by Simon Brotherton and Kevin Kilbane, and analysis by Danny Murphy and Thierry Henry.
