    Wales' starting XIThe final starting XI chosen by BBC Sport users – but who will Robert Page go for?

    Euro 2020: Wales v Denmark
    Venue: Johan Cruyff Arena, Amsterdam Date: Saturday, 26 June Kick-off: 17:00 BST
    Coverage: Live on BBC One and S4C, live commentary on BBC Radio 5 Live, BBC Radio Wales and Radio Cymru, the BBC Sport website and app, plus live text and score updates

    We asked you who should start for Wales against Denmark and, other than the formation, it is a pretty fair bet that manager Robert Page will agree.

    Page switched to a 3-4-3 system as he rested some players for Sunday's 1-0 defeat by Italy in Rome, but is expected to return to 4-2-3-1 and the same XI who began Wales' first two group games against Switzerland and Turkey.

    Some 68.23% of you would still opt for 4-3-3 but in terms of personnel there is widespread agreement on the strongest line-up as Wales look to reach the quarter-finals of Euro 2020.


    When you selected your team for the opening game against Switzerland there was a big majority in favour of Wayne Hennessey. However Danny Ward has been Page's choice throughout and the outstanding performances from the Leicester keeper earned 82.62% of your votes this time.


    Connor Roberts (50.16%) was the most popular choice for right-back ahead of Neco Williams (14.46%), and Ben Davies (16.23%) who is instead at left-back, where he was the clear favourite (54.37%).

    Joe Rodon received the highest number of votes in the centre of defence. Along with Roberts and Ward he is one of only three players to play every minute of Wales' Euro 2020 campaign so far. He is partnered by Chris Mepham who was left out of the game against Italy having already picked up a yellow card.

    You may not agree with the shape of Page's midfield but the players you would play against Denmark all featured in Wales' three Group A games.

    Aaron Ramsey was the second most picked player overall and you would have him lining up along with Joe Allen and Joe Morrell.

    Ethan Ampadu was not a contender this time, suspended after his red card against Italy.


    Over 99.8% of voters put Gareth Bale in their selection and Daniel James was the third most popular choice overall. Those two are joined in your starting XI by Kieffer Moore who scored in the opening game against Switzerland but only came on against Italy after Ampadu's sending-off.

    You can still pick your XI but your selections won't be counted towards the result – don't forget to share your picks on social media using #bbcfootball.
