Cymru will face the current World Champions at Stade Allianz Riviera before travelling to Cardiff for the final EURO send-off match at Cardiff City Stadium on Saturday 5 June.

This will be Cymru’s second trip to France in 4 years, having last played a friendly against the blues in 2017. Antoine Griezmann and Olivier Giroud both scored to secure a 2-0 victory for France while Ethan Ampadu and David Brooks made their debut appearances for the senior national team.

These matches will prove crucial preparation for EURO 2020, where Cymru will kick off the tournament against Switzerland in Baku on Saturday 12 June. Cymru will then face Turkey for the second group match on Wednesday June 16 before travelling to Rome to face Italy on Sunday June 22.

The pre-EURO friendlies are currently scheduled to be played behind-closed-doors. The FAW will continue to adhere to relevant Government guidelines and supporters will be notified should arrangements change and tickets become available.
