Euro 2020: Wales vs Switzerland; Statistical Highlights
Switzerland had won their previous six games and were on course for another victory when Embolo guided in Xherdan Shaqiri’s corner early in the 48th minute.
However, Cardiff City striker Moore, who was recalled to Wales’ starting line-up justified interim boss Rob Page’s selection call by earning his side a crucial point.
Joe Morrell sent in a cross from the right and Moore, a presence at both ends of the field throughout, glanced a header in the 73rd minute to help Wales earn a share of the spoils.
