Alun Cairns - who is heading to today's Wales v England game - hopes to see "passionate but responsible" support from Euro 2016 fans.
"Today’s football match should be all about a spirited encounter on the pitch, with passionate but responsible support in the stands.
"I am in touch with the Home Office who are liaising with the French Authorities. I have also spoken to the Football Association of Wales about the safety precautions that will be in place to protect Welsh supporters. But I would appeal to Welsh fans to be vigilant, and to avoid any provocation. It goes without saying people should not travel to the area without a ticket to the game."
"So good luck Wales, let’s see the fantastic form we witnessed at the weekend - and let’s make today all about great sport."
