Wales will play world champions France at Nice’s Stade Allianz Riviera on June 2 as part of their Euro 2020 preparations.

Wales played against France in an international friendly in 2017, with Antoine Greizmann and Olivier Giroud scoring in a 2-0 youth defeat.

After France, Wales return home for their final warm-up match against Albania at the Cardiff City Stadium on 5 June.

Wales kick off their Euro 2020 campaign against Switzerland in Baku on Saturday, 12 June.

Welsh preparations will also see them travel to Portugal for training camp, said FAW President Kieran O’Connor. plans are not affected by the uncertainty whether manager Ryan Giggs will be able to lead the team this summer.

In February, Giggs, who was appointed by Wales in January 2018, his bail was extended to 1 May after denying assault charges.

Robert Page’s assistant has represented his absence from the last two camps.

“The euro is still two months away, we know exactly what we are doing, we know when we will go, how we will go and who will go, everything is ready,” said O’Connor.

“We don’t know in terms of the manager who’s going to be but there are plans A, B, C and D. If Ryan can join us, great, if not, we have plans going forward.”
