Wales face a daunting start to their Euro 2024 campaign with a trip to World Cup bronze medallists Croatia.

It’s the start of a new era for the Welsh national team, who can no longer call on retired greats like Gareth Bale and Joe Allan.

Aaron Ramsey has taken over the captaincy following Bale’s retirement as his country look to reach a third consecutive European Championship.

But Croatia will provide stiff opposition, having enjoyed a superb run to the semi-finals in Qatar before beating Morocco in the third-place play-off.

Kick-off is at 7:45pm GMT. 

Team news

Chris Gunter and Jonny Williams have also retired since the World Cup, while manager Rob Page called up four uncapped players in Luke Harris, Jordan James, Nathan Broadhead and Ollie Cooper.

Ben Davies and Wayne Hennessey pulled out with injury and Brennan Johnson is a doubt, while Croatia are without injured striker Bruno Petkovic.


Croatia: WLDDD

Wales: LLDLL

VPN guide

Use a VPN to watch Euro 2024 qualifiers from outside your country

If you’re out of the country for a Euro 2024 qualifier, then you won't be able to watch on your domestic streaming service as usual. The broadcaster knows where you are because of your IP address (boo!) and blocks you from watching it. You can use a VPN to get around that, though, without resorting to illegal feeds you’ve found on Reddit.

A Virtual Private Network (VPN), assuming it complies with your broadcaster’s T&Cs, creates a private connection between your device and t'internet, meaning the service can’t work out where you are and will let you watch. And all the info going between is entirely encrypted, anonymous and safe – and that's a result.

There are plenty of good-value options out there. For the Euro 2024 qualifiers, FourFourTwo currently recommends:


ExpressVPN including a 30-day, money-back guarantee
FourFourTwo’s brainy office mates TechRadar love its super speedy connections, trustworthy security and the fact it works with Android, Apple, Roku, Amazon Fire TV, PS5 and loads more. You also get a money-back guarantee, 24/7 support and it's currently available for a knockdown price. Go get it!
