Aaron Ramsey Calls On Fans To Inspire Wales To Another Victory Over Belgium

Posted by

Wales midfielder Aaron Ramsey has urged his teammates to channel the spirit of historic victories over Belgium as they look to finish their qualifying group with a win that will guarantee them a home draw in the World Cup play-offs in March, avoiding Portugal and Russia. A draw on Tuesday would also be enough to finish second behind Belgium.

In June 2015, a Wales side led by Ramsey defeated Belgium 1-0 in Cardiff, paving the path for the country’s first major tournament qualifying in 57 years. At Euro 2016, Wales had their most memorable night against the same opponents, as Hal Robson-Cruyff Kanu’s turn and finish propelled them to the semi-finals.

“We’ve had some good games against Belgium over years, home and away,” Ramsey said. “That [1-0 win] was a massive game in our quest to qualify for a major championship.”

The Juventus midfielder added: “We all know the quality they have in their team, the players they have – they have the ability to do something or turn a game on its head, produce a bit of magic. We’ll have to be right on it and we’re going to need our fans to come away with a good result. To qualify for a World Cup, these opportunities won’t come along very often. It might be the last time we have an opportunity as good as this. We have a game now to finish the job off so, hopefully, we can produce another special night in Cardiff.”
