Wales began their Euro 2020 preparations with a spirited 3-0 defeat at the hands of world champions France in Nice.
Goals from Kylian Mbappe, Antoine Griezmann and Ousmane Dembele were enough to see the hosts to victory over Rob Page’s men, who were controversially reduced to 10 men midway through the first half when Neco Williams was sent off for a handball on the goal line.
Karim Benzema, making a return to international football after a six-year absence, missed the resulting spot-kick after a fine save from Danny Ward.

But the Wales goalkeeper was powerless to prevent Mbappe pouncing on the rebound from Adrien Rabiot’s low effort to open the scoring just a few minutes later.
