Ramsey - I wanted us to get England

Aaron Ramsey celebrates with Wales

Aaron Ramsey says he is "really looking forward" to facing England at Euro 2016.

Wales secured qualification to their first major tournament since 1958 earlier this year and have been rewarded with a place in Group B of next summer's tournament, where they will also play Russia and Slovakia.

Ramsey's international manager, Chris Coleman, voiced his reluctance to draw Roy Hodgson's side, but the Arsenal midfielder was pleased with the outcome - and he is particularly looking forward to the match in Lens on June 16.

“I’m really looking forward to it, it’s new for the team to be involved in there," he said.

"It’s going to be a great occasion for us, we’re going to enjoy every minute. Obviously there’s a ‘little’ game in the middle!

"But while we’re looking to enjoy it, we also want to take it seriously and get out of the group.

"To be fair, I wanted England. I had a bit of luck.

"I think it’ll be a great game for everyone who’s involved in what’ll be seen as a derby, if you like.

"[Theo and Kieran] have already been winding me up but I'm keeping quiet and seeing what happens on the day."
