What Ryan Giggs couldn’t do for Wales, Aaron Ramsey and Gareth Bale has done. Helping Wales to the Euro 2016.
Ramsey has described the much awaited qualification for a major tournament as a “great moment for Welsh football”.
Wales lost 2-0 to Bosnia-Herzegovina, but Cyprus win over Israel was the good luck they needed to qualify for the tournament.
Wales last participated in a major tournament in 1958, when they reached the quarterfinals of the world cup.
“What a great moment for Welsh football. What an achievement to have made history, we are finally going to a major tournament,” Ramsey said.
“It’s not going to sink in for a while, I’m so proud. We are finally going.
“This group of players is quite special. It didn’t quite happen tonight, but the togetherness, we’ve been really hard to beat.
“This has been a dream of mine, I know for the others it’s been the same. We’re only a small nation, but we’ve done it. We’re over the moon.”
Wales sit second in Group B with 18 points from nine games, trailing leaders Belgium by two points ahead of matchday 10.
They end their campaign with a home match against Andorra on Tuesday.
