WALES QUALIFIES FOR EURO AFTER HUNGARY DEFEAT

Aaron Ramsey was Wales’ hero as Ryan Giggs’ side secured qualification for Euro 2020 with a 2-0 home win over Hungary.

One of the stand-out performers in his country’s surprise run to the semi-finals of Euro 2016, Ramsey was making his first start of the current campaign following persistent fitness problems.

But the Juventus midfielder re-announced himself in style at a fervent Cardiff City Stadium, scoring a goal in each half as Wales deservedly claimed the win they needed to leapfrog Hungary and take the second automatic qualifying spot in Group E.

Gareth Bale, Daniel James, and the goal scorer buzzed effectively behind imposing target man Kieffer Moore throughout, although Giggs was also indebted to some first-half heroics from goalkeeper Wayne Hennessey.
