Arsenal midfielder Aaron Ramsey has revealed the Gunners manager Arsene Wenger has backed Wales to be "pretty dangerous" in the Euro 2016.

The Dragons have qualified for a major tournament for the first time in 60 years and their team is led by Real Madrid superstar Gareth Bale. Wales are in the same group as England, Russia and Slovakia.

"The manager [Wenger] was pleased for me that we qualified. He said we could be pretty dangerous over there so hopefully that proves to be right. He's a wise man," Ramsey said, as quoted by Sky Sports .

Wales take on England on 16 June and the clash between these two sides will see Ramsey face his Arsenal's teammate Jack Wilshere. Ramsey has expressed his delight to play in the European championship in France and he admitted that he started winding up his Arsenal teammates over Wales' clash against the Three Lions.

"Normally I'm on holiday now," Arsenal midfielder explained. "When the campaign started and we got those couple of wins early on I kept winding the Arsenal boys up saying 'I'll see you in France'.

"The way things were developing it was looking promising. To finally achieve it was great. To go in knowing I would actually be playing in the finals.....I can share that experience now with some of the players who've done it.

"I know what it's like with other sports in the country, in the Six Nations the whole nation is there for you.

"I wouldn't say I was jealous of rugby, but I wanted to experience that same buzz they get from the block where that's all people talk about."

Wales kick-start their Euro 2016 with a clash against Slovakia on 11 June. After their tie against England, they end their group stage fixtures when they take on Russia on 21 June.
