Daniel Bachmann will be the first Watford player in Euro 2020 action this evening as Austria face North Macedonia.

The Hornets' goalkeeper impressed during two pre-tournament friendlies against England and Slovakia and manager Franco Foda has already confirmed he will be starting today's game, which starts at 5pm.

After cementing first place in the Watford squad this season with 23 impressive performances following an injury to Ben Foster, Bachmann was handed his senior international debut only last month.

He is hoping his side can make it out of their group, that also contains Ukraine and the Netherlands.

Earlier this week, he told the i paper: “The first target is to make it to the last 16. From there you never know how far can you go, if you hit form at the right time we can go a long way because we do have a good team.

"The first step is to win the first group game against North Macedonia, they’re a tough side, they beat Germany a couple of months ago so they’re not a walkover, but that’s a game we have to win if we want to do well.

“We have quality players, 21 of our 26 players play in the Bundesliga and at good clubs as well. We do have a good squad, it’s just about everything coming together. Everybody knows how good Marko Arnautovic can be, same with David Alaba, he’s won 27 titles in 11 years at Bayern Munich including two Champions Leagues and then Marcel Sabitzer as well, he’s been linked with Arsenal, Tottenham and Liverpool so we have quality players.”

Tomorrow could see another Hornet involved in the tournament, with Ken Sema's Sweden starting their group matches against Spain.

Kick off in that match is at 8pm.
