What is the latest team news?

Wales emerged from their friendly match with France in Nice unscathed injury-wise.

Page is expected to ring the changes from the game in midweek, with the likes of Kieffer Moore, Ben Cabango and Wayne Hennessey likely to get some minutes under their belts.

Joe Allen, Aaron Ramsey and Ben Davies will all feature against Albania at some stage, while Ethan Ampadu, who missed the France clash, will also get a run-out at Cardiff City Stadium.

Neco Williams is absent after he was sent off against the French for deliberate handball. Page says there were “no grounds” to appeal the decision.

Page insists he still does not know his starting line-up to face Switzerland in Wales’ Euro 2020 opener although he has a good idea, but warned against reading too much into the line-up against Albania.

What has the manager said?

Wales manager Rob Page: “There was a plan put in place when we first met up on camp with regards to what we want, who we want maybe for the first game and work backwards, and what minutes we need to play them in the two friendlies to give us the best chance to get them involved in that first game.

“We don’t veer away from that, other than Neco which has been taken out of our control.

“It’s going to serve a purpose, and that’ll be to get minutes into the players.”
