Aaron Ramsey says other teams will “look at Wales differently” after their performances at Euro 2016.
The midfielder claimed one goal and four assists to help Chris Coleman’s side reach the semi-finals last summer, and he believes that they now have a target on their back.
“We need to acknowledge that we’re going from the hunter to the hunted,” Ramsey told the Arsenal Weekly podcast. “We’ve had a good campaign and we’ve shown what we’re capable of doing against some real good opposition.
"Everybody fights for each other out on the pitch, they work for each other and that’s been one of the main reasons for our success"
“Over the last three years with Wales, we’ve added that to our game. Everybody fights for each other out on the pitch, they work for each other and that’s been one of the main reasons for our success.
"Teams will probably look at us a lot differently now, so we will have to adjust to coming up against different tactics to try to break teams down.
“While we were away we were in our own little bubble in France and we didn’t realise the effect it was having back at home,” he added.
“The whole team had a lot of fun and the manager was great for that. He gave us that freedom to go out there and enjoy ourselves as well, to put the work in on the pitch and have a bit of downtime as well.
“When we got knocked out we were gutted, so we had a couple of days to recover and then we went out to have a few beers as a team. That was a way of saying, ‘This is what we’ve achieved’. It was very busy where we were and France were playing in the evening, so it was chaos to be able to walk through the streets. It was a good send off.”
