Cole­man re­calls Ram­sey for Ser­bian chal­lenge

Kuwait Times - - SPORTS -

Ar­se­nal mid­fielder Aaron Ram­sey’s re­call to the Wales squad for next week’s World Cup qual­i­fier with group lead­ers Ser­bia was a “no-brainer”, ac­cord­ing to man­ager Chris Cole­man. Cole­man in­cluded the 25-year-old-as well as in­form fel­low mid­fielder Joe Allen-for a match the Euro 2016 semi-fi­nal­ists need to win in Cardiff after suc­ces­sive draws stalled their mo­men­tum. Ram­sey, though, has only 75 min­utes of foot­ball un­der his belt-in the Gun­ners’ come-from-be­hind 3-2 Cham­pi­ons League win over Lu­do­gorets on Tues­day — since in­jur­ing a ham­string in mid-Au­gust. “He played 75 min­utes last night and he looks fit. It was a no-brainer. He is a huge part of what we are try­ing to do-a mas­sive part of that with the tal­ent he pos­sesses,” Cole­man said on Wed­nes­day. “It was pleas­ing to see he got so much game time last night and he got an as­sist for the se­cond goal, so fan­tas­tic. “We have never taken risks with play­ers and we wouldn’t with Aaron Ram­sey. With some­body as good as Aaron, some­thing is bet­ter than noth­ing, but we will have to wait and see after this week­end.” —AFP
