Arsenal midfielder Aaron Ramsey was in fine form as Wales beat Slovakia this weekend.

The Arsenal midfielder is a key player in the Wales team this summer, and showed that in their Group B opener against Slovakia on Saturday.

He played a key role in the 2-1 win, grabbing an assist for the late goal from Hal Robson-Kanu that saw them secure all three points.

And the stats, provided by WhoScored, show the key role that he played as Wales started Euro 2016 with a crucial victory.

He managed 69 touches in total, the most of any Wales player in the game and the fifth highest in total.

His passing was solid as he managed 47 in total, 36 of which were accurate, enjoying a pass success of 77%.

He even played his part defensively, making 11 tackles in total and winning five, a success rate of 45%, which is decent given he played as part of a front three.

An impressive display from Ramsey then, who will be hoping he can have as big an impact when Wales take on England next week.
