Ramsey’s 2020 vision clearer
Aaron Ramsey is determined to relive his best experience in football by helping Wales reach the 2020 European Championship.
Ramsey played a huge role in Wales’ march to the semi-finals of Euro 2016 when the Juventus playmaker was named in the official team of the tournament.
But injuries had prevented Ramsey from featuring in Euro 2020 qualifying until he came on for the final half-hour of Wales’ 2-0 win in Azerbaijan on Saturday evening.
Wales’ qualification destiny is now in their own hands as victory over Hungary in Cardiff tomorrow will secure second spot in Group E and a ticket to next summer’s finals across Europe.
“It would mean everything again (to qualify),” Ramsey said.
“We missed out on the World Cup, which was very disappointing. We had the best time ever at the Euros and we want to experience something like that again.
“We have a lot of new faces that haven’t experienced that, so for them as well it would be massive.”
