Arsenal Star Aaron Ramsey Inspired By German World Cup Winning Team-Mates

Emirates Stadium midfielder looks to draw on team-mates success for inspiration.

Check in to Andorra vs Wales

Arsenal midfielder Aaron Ramsey has been inspired by the efforts of his World Cup winning team-mates according to the Daily Express.

The 23 year old has been in outstanding form over the past year and is keen to help his nation to the Euro 2016 finals and draws upon the success of Mesut Ozil, Per Mertesacker and Lukas Podolski following Germany’s World Cup triumph this summer.

Wales haven’t qualified for a major tournament in 58 years and Ramsey is desperate to bring an end to that long running drought.

Ramsey’s side start their qualification campaign with a trip to Andorra and believes the time is right for his Wales side to make a real impact;

“Watching them (Mesut Ozil, Per Mertesacker and Lukas Podolski) made me think even more about what an achievement it would be to get there with Wales.

“We all know this is not only a great opportunity to show how far we’ve come as a team over the last few years, but probably one of the best opportunities we’re ever going to have of qualifying.

“And there’s a real belief we can make the most of that.”

Chris Coleman’s side need to secure a win from their fixture with Andorra and then follow up that clash with home ties against Bosnia and Cyprus.

Ramsey believes a good start is key;

“We’ve been guilty in the past of getting off to bad starts and immediately putting a dampener on things.

“You get into a new campaign with all the hype around it, people saying maybe this is the chance, and then losing the first or second game comes and puts a real downer on it all.

“We have a real chance here of a winning start in Andorra and then two home games to put ourselves up in contention right away. We need to get people as excited as we are about this campaign.”
