    Ward easily man of the match. James best outfield player followed by Moore.

    Moore when given the opportunity did well offensively but it was his presence defensively as well that stood out. Lost count of how many times he helped Wales to clear their lines.

    Wales preference to favour a counter attack approach to today's game didn't bear much fruit. A lot of wayward passing and hopeful balls lumped to Moore who didn't have much to go with, was the repetitive theme. Wales must avoid that against Turkey, their centre pairing would have a field day with that type of service. Whenever James was in an advanced position, particularly with a compromised Mbabu they looked threatening and the free kicks he was able to win resulted in two peaches of deliveries from Bale and Ramsey with unfortunately no one attacking the cross.

    Will be interested to see how Wales are setup for Wednesday's game. Anticipate some changes will be brought in as a win would be huge and would more or less secure a minimum 3rd place spot in the group.

    The midfield needs a rework, why we are starting Morrell, a player who can't get into Luton's team against players like Xhaka and Shaqiri is laughable, we allowed them too many free passes to Embolo and he caused so many issues with his dribbling, thankfully Ward was up for it and kept us in it.

    Page needs to sort out the set piece defending too, Roberts and Allen marking Embolo? Comical. I think we have enough firepower up top to cause Turkey issues but if that midfield isn't addressed we'll struggle. Maybe Ampadu comes in for Morrell? Either way, not a lot of positives to take from today. Ward was great as was James, so happy for Kieffer but we didn't look good at all

    Interesting to see the perspective of the Welsh fans in Switzerland. Think there is another on here too.

    Need to stick by these players and the team - they can still achieve a lot and together stronger like. Today we just needed more players named Daniel or Danny!

    So, could Mr Gabbidon finally get that elusive fiftieth cap and might there be debuts for Splott Parker's boy and Tuerto who I believe are both Dan's?

    A point is a good result, hopefully we can beat turkey now. Was very disappointed performance wise mind. Very lucky not to lose. I thought there was a complete lack of the effort and determination that has characterised us over the last 6 years.

    The 3 lazy and braindead passes that led to the Swiss offside goal were unforgivable. I hope page reads the riot act to them tbh

    Mr James Of United shares my exact name. It's as close as i'll ever get!

    If we play like that against Turkey then we'll get beat as you earn your luck and we used a hell of a lot against the Swiss. If we play like that against Italy them god help us; we'd get a hiding.

In modern football when a side concedes midfield you expect them to be strong at stopping crosses into the box, forcing the opposition backwards and across the pitch again and again. We were quite hopeless, and looked likely to concede every few minutes. Not sure Wales can play that way again, whoever their opponents.

    Wasn’t the best we all know but if that was the City pinching a point in a game like that I’d have been quite pleased. Avoiding defeat gives us the chance to fight another day. Let’s pray the Turks are still licking their wounds from Friday.

    Re: FT: WALES 1 - 1 SWITZERLAND.

    Wales looked like going the same way as Turkey who had conceded three second half goals last night when the rampant Embolo laid on another chance for Kevin Mbabu who stabbed wide from a good position.
    Part of the joys and frustrations of international being that you can't sign a player to improve on a weaker part of the pitch, but more should be made of the team not crumbling and keeping going for 95 minutes without an extended period on the ball in excessive heat. Character, strong support from fans and match-winners have got us to this stage and we're now seeing how far we can go.

    In hindsight, I think Tyler Roberts might have been more effective as the 10 yesterday but if we see a happier, fully fit Ramsey is available off the back of first 90'ish minutes against Turkey and Italy then we'll be better for it. Part of the joys and frustrations of a tournament is reaching for success in 90minutes while also having to improve changes of success in upcoming games.

    A draw v the Swiss is not a bad result whatever our performance. The fact we know we can do better is encouraging.

    Re: FT: WALES 1 - 1 SWITZERLAND.

    oh and another thing about yesterdays game think it's about time fans now understand why VAR was introduced

    a few years ago we would have lost that game 2-1

    as mentioned before a little tweaking with the off side rules and handball decisions will be 100 per cent with VAR

    also games shouldn't be played in extreme temperatures when in hot countries . all games should be played evening times

    Fi'n caru @cymru parchu a hwyl gyda'r Gymraeg.How many football associations celebrate a player with a reference from mythology? Bendigeidfran, the giant who walked through the sea to Ireland leading an army to save his sister, Branwen from marriage to Irish king. #Mabinogi

    There are small things the FAW are doing that deserve far more attention and credit

    Kieffer 'Bendigeidfran' Moore for the Ballan D'or.

    Re: FT: WALES 1 - 1 SWITZERLAND.

    I think @PhilippeAuclair (later corrected to Lars - whoever that is) was a but sniffy about Wales yesterday. To say we “need a Joe Ledley to kick people” is unfair. @joe16led made less than one foul a game with zero cautions and 90% pass completion in Euro 2016.

    And a chosen reply to that tweet:

    Ledley criminally underrated, just because his work rate was immense they forget what a technically good player he was. Scored a few too- including at an FA Cup semi final and play off final

    https://twitter.com/ffwtbol/status/1404065792778457088
    I'd love us to have a more physically imposing, equally hard-working, sufficiently quick around the pitch and technically good CM to come in to help out Allen or Morrell. Levitt looked like he had a bit of bite in him against Albania and might be that player in a few years.

    Id just wish we had better options than Allen and Morrell.

    But this is international football. Even if we did have better options we'd only be an injury or suspension away so surely we should support them while recognising what they do well, where they need to improve etc...

    Morrell has performed well in all/almost all his previous internationals, admittedly most of those coming against weaker opposition than Switzerland. Good article on him here: https://welshfootballfans.com/eatsle...9s-tz6bf-43jbd
