Arsenal midfielder Aaron Ramsey is pleased with the way Wales has performed so far at the competition. But has warned against getting complacent, after qualifying for the last 16.
The midfielder opened the scoring for Wales, with Neil Taylor and Gareth Bale scoring in the 3-0 win over Russia. A crucial win, that sees them finish top of the group ahead of England.
Ramsey was particularly pleased with the way the players responded from the disappointment of their last-gasp 2-1 defeat to England, who had to settle for second place in the group after a toothless goalless draw with Slovakia.
“We wanted to come to this competition and really make a statement, put Welsh football on the map and show what we are capable of doing. I think we’ve done that,” he told ITV.
“Maybe against England we let the occasion get to us a bit, in terms of when we had the ball. That was something we really wanted to improve on [against Russia].
“We’ve shown what a good defensive team we are, but now we have shown what a good team we are in possession. We created loads of opportunities and we can really be proud of what we have achieved so far.”
