Euro 2020 Profile Wales

The Gareth Bale and Aaron Ramsey led outfit will once again look to replicate their 2016 success. The emergence of youngsters gives them a solid platform and lends the squad flexibility. Dragons also have increased goal threat in the form of Moore, Harry Wilson and Daniel James.

Strengths

Togetherness and No of match winners

Wales are an average team with couple of match winners, however Giggs has found a system which has got the best out of their players which also puts Bale and Ramsey in their favoured positions which helps them inflict maximum damage to the opposition. The emergence of Ampadu, Dan James, Harry Wilson and Neco Williams adds more quality to the team.

Weaknesses

Indifferent seasons for Bale and Ramsey: Key players such as Bale (at Tottenham) and Ramsey (with Juventus) are coming off club seasons in which they weren’t at top form and also struggled for fitness. If two of its most important players can’t produce, Wales are going to be in big trouble at the Euros.

The Giggs Question: Manager Ryan Giggs successfully guided Wales through the qualifiers, but his arrest on assault charges last year means caretaker boss Robert Page will lead the team into battle at Euro. Can the Welsh team overcome the distraction of the Giggs situation and still produce the goods under their inexperienced, interim manager?
