Gabby Logan apologises for the BBC’s coverage of Wales vs Turkey

BBC presenter Gabby Logan apologised to viewers during half-time of the broadcaster’s coverage of Wales vs Turkey after technical issues blighted the first period of the Euros game.

The Welsh eventually won the clash in Azerbaijan 2-0 to all but book their place in the last-16, with Robert Page’s side now on four points in Group C.

However, supporters of the Dragons were left hugely frustrated in the first half when the camera feed was interrupted by glitching on a number of occasions, with the screen going blank and the audio being out of sync with the action.

Commentator Steve Wilson said sorry to viewers at one stage, and at the start of the half-time break Logan did the same, adding: “Wherever you’re from I think you’d agree it was a great half of football, but we have to apologise.

“Of course, Steve explained these pictures come from Uefa’s headquarters. They control the feeds. Obviously there was some technical issues going on in that.”

Wales fans will no doubt have got over that annoyance pretty quickly as an injury time Connor Roberts goal added to Aaron Ramsey’s opener on 42 minutes to seal a massive three points.

Speaking after the match their talisman Gareth Bale, who missed a penalty in the second half, said: “I’m absolutely delighted with the win, we fought hard, worked our socks off, yes I missed a penalty but I feel I showed good character to keep going. That second goal at the end was the icing on the cake.

“You’d like to think that [four points] would be enough, we will have to wait and see, if you’d offered us four points at the start we would have bitten your hand off.”

Roberts added: “That’s the best moment of my career that will probably never be matched. To be playing in a major competition is the pinnacle for me, and to almost seal us through to the next stage is incredible.

“Today is a massive step towards that, we have a massive game on Sunday, but it has done us no harm winning today.

“We are a young group but we have resilience, people who will run until the last minute and we did that tonight. Chris Mepham had told me not to go forward for that corner! But that’s just what I do, it’s an incredible feeling.”

Wales’ final group-stage game comes on Sunday when they take on Italy in Rome, but they may well already have one eye on the last-16 as they look to go even further than 2016, when they memorably reached the semi-finals.
