Turkey 0-2 Wales: Ramsey and Robert secure vital win for the Dragons

Wales take a massive step towards the knockout round of Euro 2020 with a 2-0 victory over Turkey in Baku.

Aaron Ramsey missed two first-half chances before he fired Wales ahead with his third attempt before the break.

Gareth Bale had the opportunity to extend their advantage from the penalty spot after being brought down in the box, only to blast his effort over the bar.

Robert Page’s men were defiant at the back and secured the three points in stoppage time when Bale notched his second assist of the game to tee up Connor Roberts.

But this victory was as much about the sentry-men. Tottenham’s 23-year-old defender Joe Rodon – a real talent – resisted everything that Turkey threw at him, as did his club team-mate Ben Davies. Danny Ward produced another two-handed save of the highest order at the death.

What makes the Wales story so much more fascinating than most of the nations at this tournament is the contribution of players who have had so little chance to play club football.

Wales take on Italy in Rome in their final Group A game on Sunday.

Turkey face a must-win contest against Switzerland in Baku on Sunday to avoid an exit at the first hurdle.
