Wales take on Slovakia on Saturday 11th June, 2016, with kickoff at 17:00. This match is currently being shown LIVE on BBC 1.

A combination of good management, Gareth Bale and an expanded European Championship saw Wales qualify for a major tournament for the first time in what must seem like an eternity to their long-suffering fans. Their opening match looking eminently winnable if they can perform to expectation, and keep the £80m man fit.

That will be a major problem for Chris Coleman, as no side at this tournament is more reliant on one player, making Bale very much a marked man in more ways than one.
