Wales is one the verge to secure a spot at Euro 2016 in France next summer after a brilliant display by Gareth Bale & Co. in Group B.
Wales tops Group B on 18 points after eight matches and only needs one point in the closing two games against Bosnia and Herzegovina and Andorra in October. Midfielder Aaron Ramsey is confident that they will close this out in the next game against the Bosnians.
“We feel we can go to Bosnia and grab all three points,” Ramsey told The Guardian. “That’s the confidence in this team at the moment. Hopefully we will be able to do that and have a successful end to what has been a great campaign.
“This squad has got a lot of experience and a lot of the players play for top clubs around the world and have a lot of caps. We haven’t been in this position before but I think our club experience will help us. We have done a remarkable job so far so we won’t feel too down. We are still top of the group with a couple of games to play, we’re looking forward to that.”
Wales had the opportunity to secure a spot with a win over Israel on Monday, but the meeting ended in a scoreless draw despite Wales dominating the game. Bale has scored six out of Wales’ nine goals in the qualifiers and there’s some concern that the team is too reliant on the Real Madrid star.
“We will just have to be more clinical in front of goal really,” Ramsay said. “We created a few opportunities but we didn’t put the ball in the back of the net which is disappointing for all the good play that we did. It is important in these sorts of games to be patient, move the ball quickly, side to side, and to wear them down. The gap will open up sooner or later, you just have to take that opportunity and then the game will open up and take care of itself.”
