  2. Coleman's proudest moment

    FT Wales 2-1 Slovakia

    Wales manager Chris Coleman on BBC One: "I think it is my proudest moment.

    "Our supporters keep on topping what they have done - that support today was unbelievable. When Slovakia got the equaliser, they were looking strong - they're a good team, physical and play good football.

    "In the second half the fans sensed we were a bit jaded and sitting back a bit. We came back and they got right behind us. Our boys showed passion and courage to come back. It was incredible attitude and mentality."

  3. We can win it!

    Wales 2-1 Slovakia

    Dean Saunders

    Ex- Wales striker on BBC One

    What a win. Wales have been brilliant all afternoon. Chris Coleman has got everything right, even when it went against us. At 1-1, I thought we were going to lose the game. Joe Ledley came on and Hal Robson-Kanu scored. We can win [the tournament].

    We deserved it. We put so much into the first half, that they were out on their feet.

  4. Modest Joe

    FT Wales 2-1 Slovakia

    Wales midfielder Joe Allen: "Never mind my performance, the team was brilliant. To go one up and get back into it was brilliant. That's what this team is all about, digging in and hanging on to it.

    "From start to finish, the fans were immense. They stayed loud and that helps you get an extra 5-10 percent which makes all the difference."

  5. Free agent hero not worried about future

    FT Wales 2-1 Slovakia

    Wales match-winner Hal Robson-Kanu: "Rambo [Aaron Ramsey] did great, opened a bit of space and I managed to direct it into the corner. It wasn't the best finish but one we're all happy about."

    On not having a club: "It's not something I'm thinking about right now. It's about the nation today and hopefully we can do them proud again as we have today.

    "Our focus is on us, what we can do. England play later and it's our next game so we will be fully focused on that."

  6. Like a home game

    FT Wales 2-1 Slovakia

    Wales' Gareth Bale speaks to BBC Sport: "What can I say, it was like a home game. Our fans are the best in the world and fully got behind us. We gave them something to celebrate.

    "The goal is right up there. A memorable moment, a historic moment for our country. The most important thing is we got the three points.

    "Hal to get the winner is amazing. the subs have to make an impact and he was amazing when he came on. Everyone has a part to play and we will keep fighting."

  7. Maybe Gary Speed is looking down

    FT Wales 2-1 Slovakia

    John Hartson

    Former Wales striker on BBC One

    All the Wales team have stood up today. Yes, they've won the game but they are not getting too excited. I believe this win will take us through as one of those third-placed team.

    It's a massive win and Wales showed huge character. Maybe Gary Speed is looking down on the players.

  8. Wales were brilliant

    FT Wales 2-1 Slovakia

    Alan Shearer

    Former England captain on BBC One

    Wales were brilliant. They had to dig deep. We must praise Chris Coleman, he had to change it. He brought on Robson-Kanu and Joe Ledley and it worked a treat. They never gave up and they deserved that win.

    Questions were asked in the second half because Slovakia changed it and put another two forwards up there. They were on top and asking serious questions.

    But Chris Coleman had the guts and changed it.

  9. FULL-TIME - Wales 2-1 Slovakia

    It’s over! Wales make a winning start to Euro 2016!

    It’s been a long wait – 58 years since they last played at a major tournament – and the wait was worth it.

    Wales’ players, substitutes and staff celebrate on the pitch, and their thousands of travelling fans can start a party which will go deep into the night – and the next day – in Bordeaux.

    They’re only one match into the campaign, but Wales have taken a huge step towards qualification for the knockout stages.

    What a day.


    Wales 2-1 Slovakia

    Slovakia captain Martin Skrtel really has lost his head in this match.

    Wales’ Ben Davies wins possession with two excellent, clean sliding tackles, but on the second Skrtel comes flying in with a cheap shot of a late challenge.

    He doesn’t make contact with Davies fortunately but Neil Taylor is not impressed and, despite being significantly shorter than Skrtel, squares up to the Liverpool defender, who is booked.

  11. Post update

    Wales 2-1 Slovakia

    Gareth Bale leads another Wales break and this time he does manage to have a shot on goal, but it’s straight at Matus Kozacik.


    Wales 2-1 Slovakia

    Wales counter-attack with Gareth Bale and Aaron Ramsey but neither is able to get into a shooting position.

    They win a corner, which Slovakia clear, and Wales make their final substitution.

    Ramsey gets a standing ovation for his wholehearted effort and is replaced by Jazz Richards.

    Welsh hearts skipped a beat there!

    It was very nearly a second Slovakian equaliser, and very nearly a third goal in this match by a substitute.

    This time it’s Adam Nemec, whose header hits the post and Wales clear. Way too close for comfort.
