Wales finished their friendly preparations for Euro 2020 with a 0-0 draw with Albania, playing in front of a crowd at the Cardiff City Stadium for the first time in 18 months.

It was a very low key affair for Robert Page’s side especially in the first half where the visitors were the better side but an improved second half performance can give some confidence ahead of the first game for us in the tournament next Saturday against Switzerland.

6500 were in the ground for the game which was the first time Welsh sides had seen their country in action live since November 2019, a game which sealed qualification for this summer’s tournament – one that itself was delayed from last year.

Today [against Albania] highlights a few things where we need to do a lot better,” Ben Davies told the BBC after the game

“There are plenty of things to work on after that game. It was tough.

“We had a plan. It didn’t go exactly the way we prepped for but we adapted to it, changed it up and we were a lot better second half.

“I’d much rather things go wrong in this game than in the tournament.

“I don’t think there’s any panic, They’re friendly games for a reason, they’re there to try things out, work on yourself more than results-based games.

“Today highlights a few things where we need to do a lot better. We’ll work on it this week and be ready for the big games coming up.

“It was pretty special, especially when the anthem was going around the stadium at the start.

“It was an incredible feeling. Football’s not been the same without fans.”
