Don't Drop Rambo . . . Former Wales Star Says Axing Aaron Ramsey Would Be A Big Mistake

Dean Saunders has urged Wales manager Robert Page to ignore demands to axe Aaron Ramsey for the do-or-die World Cup clash against England. Wales midfielder Ramsey – so often the beating heart of Welsh triumphs over the years – has been a shadow of himself at the tournament so far.

Brennan Johnson Starts The Repair Job On Wales' Self-Belief As England Crunch Looms

Brennan Johnson insists Wales can shock England and keep their World Cup dream alive. Wales’ hopes of making the knockout stages were left hanging by a thread after losing 2-0 to Iran.
