Bale, Ramsey back to their best as Wales show signs of rekindling some of their Euro 2016 magic

There were question marks over both Gareth Bale and Aaron Ramsey heading into Euro 2020. Was Bale still the inspirational force he was in 2016? Was Ramsey going to be fit enough to warrant his spot in the Wales team? Against Turkey on Wednesday, they laughed in the face of their doubters by putting in outstanding performances to help Wales to a brilliant 2-0 victory.

Both had quiet matches in Wales' opening 1-1 draw with Switzerland, but on a humid Tuesday evening in Baku, Azerbaijan, they combined seamlessly for Wales' first-half goal and were outstanding in managing the tempo of the match as Rob Page's men closed out a key win which all but books Wales' spot in the knockout stages.
