    59. Embolo shows his defensive worth by getting back to smother James out for a corner - but at what cost?

    The Switzerland goalscorer has gone down, and looks in some discomfort. It may be that he took a knock on the achilles.

    56. Wales go hunting for a route back into this one. James attempts to get on the end of of a deep from the right, but Mbabu is first to the ball.

    If the Dragons are searching for inspiration, perhaps this is the competition in which to find it.

    52. It should be two!

    Brilliant work again from Embolo, combining strength, pace and awareness to play in Mbabu on the overlap.

    The wing-back takes the sidefooted shot on first time, but pulls it well wide of the target.

    49. Denied by Danny Ward seconds earlier, there's no stopping this one from Breel Embolo!

    Xherdan Shaqiri whips in a superb curler from the right towards the far post, and there's the Swiss forward, holding off the challenge of Connor Roberts to head home.

    It's no more than Switzerland deserve. What have Wales got now?

    It's goalless at the break in Baku. Despite long periods of Switzerland domination, it's Wales that came the closest to scoring in the first half when Moore's header was brilliantly saved by Sommer.

  • PEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEP!
    THE HALF-TIME WHISTLE GOES!

    45+1. I n the first of two minutes added time, Switzerland force their best chance of the game.

    Embolo breaks into the box, holding off Mepham, who has a handful of the Swiss player's shirt.

    The forward holds play up, and then feeds the arriving Seferovic, who spoons a right-footed attempt wide from close range.

    Half-time can't come quick enough for Wales now.

    40. Embolo, drifting in off the right, is making a nuisance of himself.

    Indeed, it's his movement that creates space for Seferovic to unleash a shot from the edge of the area, one that is high and wide of the target.
