Aaron Ramsey scored the first goal to give Wales a 2-0 victory over Turkey at the European Championship.

Gareth Bale played a lobbed pass and Ramsey chested it down before knocking it past onrushing Turkey goalkeeper Ugurcan Çakir in the 42nd minute.

Bale had a chance to make it 2-0 in Baku but he missed from the penalty spot in the 61st minute. Connor Roberts added the second in the final moments of the game.

Wales have four points in Group A from its first two games while Turkey are on zero after losing both of its matches.

Turkey had strong support from travelling fans and many locals in close ally Azerbaijan. The presidents of both Turkey and Azerbaijan were in attendance.
