Euro 2020: Wales beat Turkey 2-0 in Baku despite Bale penalty miss | UK News

Wales have beaten Turkey 2-0 in their second game at Euro 2020 thanks to goals by Aaron Ramsey and Connor Roberts.

Ramsey controlled a superb pass by Gareth Bale and tucked the ball home from close range on 43 minutes.

Bale later wasted a glorious chance to double the lead when he lifted a penalty well over the bar after the break.

But Roberts scored deep into injury time to secure three points for the Welsh in a tense finish.

Wales have four points from their first two Group A matches with fancied Italy to come on Sunday.

The top two teams in each of the six groups will advance to the round of 16 along with the four best third-place teams.

Wales played with far more aggression than they did in their opening draw with Switzerland and might have won by more if Ramsey, in particular, had been sharper with his finishing.

Wales were one of the big surprises of Euro 2016, when they reached the semi-finals.

Italy play Switzerland in the other game in the group at 8pm.
