Italy vs Wales Euro 2020 time, date, channel

The Italy vs Wales Euro 2020 game starts today (Sunday, June 20) at 5 p.m. BST / 12 p.m. ET / 9 a.m. PT. In the U.S., it's available on ESPN2. In the U.K., you can watch on ITV and the ITV Hub. Full channel details below.

The Italy vs Wales live stream brings Group A of Euro 2020 to a close and could see Wales join Italy in the last 16.

The Italians are already through thanks to two sparkling 3-0 victories against Turkey and Switzerland. But Wales also have four points themselves, and know that a draw will be enough for them to finish second. In fact, they might even go through with a defeat, depending on what happens elsewhere. 

Not that they'll be thinking in those terms though — Gareth Bale, Aaron Ramsey and co will want to seal their place in style. Bale and Ramsey both start, but elsewhere Wales boss Robert Page makes three changes to the team that beat Turkey, with Ben Davies, Chris Meprhan and Kieffer Mooreleft all out and Neco Williams, Ethan Ampadu and Chris Gunter in. 

Wales: Ward; Gunter, Rodon, Ampadu; Roberts, Morrell, Allen, Ramsey, N Williams; Bale, James

Italy, meanwhile, make eight changes so their players can get a rest ahead of the last 16.

Italy: Donnarumma; Toloi Bonucci, Bastoni, Emerson; Verratti, JOrginho, Pessina; Bernardeschi, Belotti, Chiesa

There's no doubt that Italy are the favorites: Here's the betting ahead of the game (source: DraftKings):
