Speaking to The Telegraph, Aaron Ramsey revealed that Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger is backing Wales to ruffle feathers in Euro 2016.

The competition kicks off tonight as host nation France welcome Romania to Stade de France in the first game of the tournament.

Meanwhile, it is Wales' first major competition since the 1958 World Cup after manager Chris Coleman masterminded a brilliant qualifying campaign.

Coleman boasts some very capable players in the form of Arsenal's Ramsey and, of course, two-time Champions League winner Gareth Bale.

They get their tournament underway with a clash against Slovakia in Bordeaux on Saturday, and Ramsey says that his Arsenal boss believes they could be "pretty dangerous" after a chat when the Gunners' season finished.

“He said we could be pretty dangerous in France so hopefully that proves to be right,” he said to The Telegraph. “He’s a wise man.”

If they are to give a good account of themselves, Wales will need Bale to be at his best of course, but the same applies to Ramsey.

The 25-year-old scored five and set up four goals from 31 Premier League appearances this past season - 29 of which were starts.

He certainly has another few gears and Wales fans will be hoping to see him at his best over the next couple of weeks.
