Wales midfielder Aaron Ramsey said his fitness concerns are all behind him and he is confident he can cope with the demands of the upcoming European Championship.

Ramsey has been plagued by injuries in recent years which limited his game time for club and country but the 30-year-old played 22 of Juventus' 38 Serie A games last season.

"For me to have missed a few games over the last few years has been very frustrating and difficult," the former Arsenal midfielder said on Monday.

"Hopefully now that is behind me and I can look forward to all these games in the European Championship. I've definitely worked hard over the last few months to get my body back into a good place."

Wales, who reached the semi-finals in 2016, will also face Italy and Turkey in Group A, with three games in nine days.

"It's a very difficult group," Ramsey said. "Our target is to get out of the group so we're going to have to be fully focused, hit the ground running."

What are the latest odds?

Wales - 5/2
Switzerland - 5/4
Draw - 2/1

Living in a house with a swimming pool is very much like owning a boat. The two best days are the day you buy it and the day you sell it.

More trouble than they are worth. :nqat:

That is class!

Making the teams feel at home there, really good. Nice stadium too. Wasn't sure what to expect, I remember watching a grainy video of Leggy playing for us in Baku about 20 years ago. I think it works in our favour a little that we have two games in Baku before we have to travel to Rome. Switzerland have to go back and forth.

Predicting hat on - 1-1 on Saturday, and a win against Turkey on Wednesday. Really nervous though. These boys can make real names for themselves out there, no bigger incentive than that.
