Kieffer Moore's late equaliser keeps Welsh dreams alive at Euro 2020

Wales bagged a late equaliser in a pulsating 1-1 draw with Switzerland in their Euro 2020 opener.

The opening 45 minutes didn't offer much in terms of excitement as both teams went into the interval goalless. The second-half, meanwhile, couldn't have been any different. 

Breel Embolo opened the scoring in the 49th minute as Switzerland dominated possession.

But with 15 minutes to go, Kieffer Moore headed in the equaliser as Wales fought back in an action packed second-half.
