Liverpool goalkeeper Danny Ward makes his first start for Wales in their Euro 2016 opening match against Slovakia (5pm BST kick off).

Ward, who has played twice as substitute for Chris Coleman’s side previously, comes into the side due to first-choice keeper Wayne Hennessey suffering a back injury.

Ward’s inclusion means there’s three Reds on show in the first group C match, with Joe Allen in midfield for Wales and Martin Skrtel captaining Slovakia.

Wales: Ward; Gunter, Chester, A Williams, Davies, Taylor; Edwards, Allen, Ramsey, J Williams; Bale.

Slovakia: Kozacik; Pekarik, Skrtel, Durica, Svento; Mak, Kucka, Hrosovsky, Hamsik, Weiss; Duris.

Wales’ game is followed by England vs. Russia (8pm BST kick off), where five Liverpool players are in contention to start for Roy Hodgson’s side.

To mark the end of the 30-year wait for a league title, the ‘Liverpool Mishmash’ poster is now available to pre-order exclusively on This Is Anfield.
