Italy extend unbeaten run to 30, Wales advance into last 16 plus a look ahead to Monday

Wales progress into the last 16 for the second consecutive time at the European Championships, alongside Italy who top Group A.

Italy extended their unbeaten run to 30 games following a 1-0 victory over 10-men Wales at Stadio Olimpico.

Despite defeat, Wales will also progress into the last 16 after finishing above Switzerland in second place on goal difference.

Matteo Pessino scored the sole goal for Italy and Roberto Mancini's side now stretched their winning run to 11 games with as many clean sheets.

Gareth Bale blazed over a glorious chance to equalise and is yet to score in the tournament following a penalty miss against Turkey in the previous game.
