Arsenal player key to Wales’ progress in Euro 2016

Aaron Ramsey is definitely having the tournament of his life and his performances for Wales have played a crucial role in their journey to top their group over England, Slovakia and Russia.

The 25-year-old Arsenal player has worked tirelessly for the entire 268 minutes played by him. His efforts have taken the load off Gareth Bale’s shoulder. Ramsey’s presence in the Welsh National Team is as important as Los Blancos’ winger.

Not only the work rate on-the-ball has been immense for Aaron Ramsey, but also the work rate of off-the-ball movement. He opened the scoring for Wales against Russia with a beautiful chip over Russian keeper, Akinfeev. Ramsey has played his part in 3 goals for Wales with a goal and 2 assists in 3 matches.

For Wales it is a great relief, as most of their players have been performing over par from what was expected. Aaron Ramsey is one of the best players on the pitch for them and his performances will be a key to how far Wales progresses in the tournament.
