    82. Close! Bale backheels Brooks in on the left, and the substitute's low centre is a yard ahead of the lunging Ramsey at the far post.

    80. Ten minutes plus additional time are left on the clock.

    Can Switzerland regain a foothold? Or is momentum now with Wales?

    77. Keep your head, Wales.

    Rob Page's men are nearly caught out on the counter with Embolo again causing havoc.

    75. Wales make an immediate change, but it's not a popular one – especially with Dan James, who is the player removed.

    The Manchester United man looks shocked and angry by his departure, and makes his point to coaching staff as David Brooks comes on in his place.

    74. That's why he's in the team!

    Kieffer Moore equalises with a thumping header from a brilliantly-worked corner.

    Dan James takes it short on the right, where it is worked back to Joe Morrell. The Luton midfielder then picks out Moore with a glorious inswinger than finds the striker on the run and leap in front of Fabian Schar.

    The glancing header is perfect, and is too good for the despairing dive of Yann Sommer as it finds the bottom corner.

    It's anyone's game now!

    73. Wales win a corner of their own. Can they make this one count?

    70. The Swiss are culpable of overplaying at the back, and give away a needless throw-in under no pressure.

    Vladimir Petkovic's team need to ensure they're not responsible for their own downfall, given their domination this afternoon.

    68. Discussions continue on the touchline but still no changes appear forthcoming.

    It's surprising giving the heat – although three quarters of the pitch is now covered by shade.

    WALES 0-1 SWITZERLAND

    66. The Swiss make the game's first change with Denis Zakaria on in place of Xherdan Shaqiri.

    The Liverpool man goes off having created the game's only goal.

    64. Ramsey's cross! Argh!

    It's a beautiful delivery from the midfielder, curled towards the far post and begging for the the slightest touch that it needs to force the ball home.

    Unfortunately, and despite Moore's presence, it doesn't get it.

    63. French referee Clement Turpin is having a shocker.

    Having cautioned Moore earlier for a nothing challenge, he's just shown Mbabu a yellow card for executing an excellent sliding tackle on James.

    Wales don't mind though, and Ramsey now stands over the free-kick to the left of the penalty area.

    WALES 0-1 SWITZERLAND

    62. The next corner is less of a threat, and Switzerland are able to regroup.

    Embolo is also back in the action, and looks over that injury scare.

    WALES 0-1 SWITZERLAND

    61. Embolo is still off the pitch, and that offers Wales a sniff as the corner comes in.

    It's header clear, but only as far as Davies on the edge of the box. He takes a touch to set himself, and then whistles a strike over the bar.

    It took a deflection, and will bring another corner to Wales.

    WALES 0-1 SWITZERLAND

    59. Embolo shows his defensive worth by getting back to smother James out for a corner – but at what cost?

    The Switzerland goalscorer has gone down, and looks in some discomfort. It may be that he took a knock on the achilles.

    WALES 0-1 SWITZERLAND

    58. Rob Page is in discussion with his backroom team. Are Welsh changes imminent?

  • Sam Dymond

    WALES 0-1 SWITZERLAND

    56. Wales go hunting for a route back into this one. James attempts to get on the end of of a deep from the right, but Mbabu is first to the ball.

    If the Dragons are searching for inspiration, perhaps this is the competition in which to find it.

    WALES 0-1 SWITZERLAND

    52. It should be two!

    Brilliant work again from Embolo, combining strength, pace and awareness to play in Mbabu on the overlap.

    The wing-back takes the sidefooted shot on first time, but pulls it well wide of the target.

    WALES 0-1 SWITZERLAND

    49. Denied by Danny Ward seconds earlier, there's no stopping this one from Breel Embolo!

    Xherdan Shaqiri whips in a superb curler from the right towards the far post, and there's the Swiss forward, holding off the challenge of Connor Roberts to head home.

    It's no more than Switzerland deserve. What have Wales got now?

  • Sam Dymond

    GOOOOAAAAAAAAAALLLLL!!
    BREEL EMBOLO SCORES THIS TIME!!

    WALES 0-0 SWITZERLAND

    48. Brilliant save by Ward to deny Embolo!

    The Swiss forward does brilliantly to turn away from Rodon, and then accelerate between the Tottenham man and Mepham.

    A thumping shot immediately follows, and it looks destined for the top corner until Ward sticks out a strong arm to divert over.

    Corner to Switzerland.

    47. A yellow card for Kieffer Moore – and it looks a harsh one.

    The striker challenges Schar for an aerial ball, and the Newcastle defender hits the deck holding his face. There was very little in itt.

    WALES 0-0 SWITZERLAND

    46. Wales get us back underway in at the Olympic Stadium for a huge 45 minutes of action that is likely to set the tone for how well the Dragons progress at the tournament.

    There are no substitutions to report which means we'll be in for a flurry in the final stages.

  • Sam Dymond

    PEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEP!
    BACK AT IT IN BAKU!
