missed his penalty in their 2-0 victory over Turkey in a match where Ramsey and Bale showed impressive performances.

Despite missing a penalty, Bale provided passes for both goals and showed his real quality despite not having a good time at club level in recent years.

Ramsey jokingly told BBC Sport:

"He's tried to wobble it into the top bins. Maybe I'll get back on them now!"

"It was a big moment but we didn't really panic, we stuck at it, we dug in and we left everything out there," the Juventus midfielder then reflected.

"That's what we've built our success on over the last few years, is really working hard for each other, and we showed that tonight."

The high-profile player was also happy with his performance and the result despite missing an excellent opportunity to put his name on the score sheet.

"Yes, I missed the penalty but thought I showed good character to help the team, we needed that victory more than anything and to get a second goal at the end was the icing on the cake."

Bale said


Ramsey is happy with Wales’ situation insisting that they earned an important point against Switzerland and that they are prepared to face Italy as he will face a few players from his club.

"We've given ourselves a brilliant opportunity now, we've still got a game to go, that was a really good point against Switzerland and it gave us the platform to go on and get the win,"

added Ramsey, who is also looking forward to a return to Italy, where he plies his trade domestically.

"It'll be nice [going to Italy]. I've got a few team-mates playing for the national team, so that'll be nice, but I'm representing my country and want to do everything to win that game as well. It'll be a good battle!"
