Wales face a huge test in their first Euro 2020 warm-up game when they take on world champions France in Nice on Wednesday.

Les Bleus are among the favourites to be crowned European champions at this summer’s tournament, three years after winning the World Cup in Russia.

Their star-studded squad includes a large Premier League contingent and Wales will be hoping to spring a big surprise in the first of their two pre-tournament friendly games.

Robert Page’s side face Albania four days later, before kicking off their Group A campaign against Switzerland on June 12.

Wales then face Turkey on June 16 and Italy on June 20, as they look to repeat the heroics of five years ago, when they stormed all the way to the semi-finals.

France face Bulgaria in their final warm-up game before beginning their Group F fixtures against Germany on June 15.

Didier Deschamps’ side were drawn in the so-called ‘group of death’ and face Hungary on June 19 before taking on reigning European champions Portugal on June 23 in a repeat of the 2016 final.

Wales have won one of their last five meetings with France, 1-0 win in 1982, and all their clashes have been in friendly games.

The most recent was a 2-0 win for the French in Paris in November 2017, when Antoine Griezmann and Olivier Giroud scored.

Kick-off is at 8.05pm BST and the game is being shown on Sky Sports and S4C in the UK. See below for watching details where you are.

Use a VPN to watch a France v Wales live stream from outside your country

If you’re on holiday or just simply out of the country, your domestic on-demand services won’t work – the broadcaster knows exactly where you are from your IP address. Your access to the game will be automatically blocked, which is annoying if you’ve paid a subscription fee and don't want to use an illegal, buffering stream that makes you miss another Jose Mourinho tantrum. And that's where we recommend ExpressVPN (more on which below). 

All you need to do is get a Virtual Private Network (VPN) to get beyond such aggravations (assuming it complies with your broadcaster’s T&Cs). A VPN creates a private connection between your device and the internet, meaning suppliers can’t work out where you are and what you’re doing. The info going to and from is entirely encrypted.
