Ramsay banned for Portugal match

Football can be cruel. It’s good to Wales right now though. They’re in their first ever semi-final at a major tournament after beating Belgium 3-1. However, star midfielder Aaron Ramsey will miss that game through suspension. Remember we said it could be cruel?

He only picked up two yellow cards in five matches. Five matches is far too big a window in a tournament with so much at stake. Wales had never qualified for a European Championship before. They mightn’t qualify again for a while. Who knows what the future holds.

Wales Golden Generation

Mind you, they look good. They’re not only a pretty team either, they’ve got steel. They came from behind to earn a clear win over their highly-tipped opponents. A golden generation, they’ve called them. But really this Wales side is the true golden generation.

Gareth Bale gets more headlines but Ramsey is a driving force. He’s been involved in more goals than any other player in the Euros and has provided more assists in this competition than he did in the Premier League last season.

Ben Davies will also miss the match through suspension. Read tweets on their bans below.
