Wales manager Ryan Giggs this morning provided a brief update on the fitness of sidelined Arsenal midfielder Aaron Ramsey.
Wales back in action
Giggs’ men welcomed Trinidad & Tobago to the Racehorse Ground on Wednesday, for a friendly matchup.
The hosts eventually emerged with a hard-fought 1-0 win, courtesy of Liverpool youngster Ben Woodburn’s injury-time strike.
And Wales’ final outing of the international break, set to take place tomorrow afternoon, will see them host Slovakia at the Cardiff City stadium, in a European Championship qualifier.
One player whom the Dragons will be unable to call on tomorrow, however, is star midfielder Aaron Ramsey.
Ryan Giggs confirmed on Tuesday that the 28-year-old had picked up a thigh problem in training, and that Ramsey was set to miss his side’s meeting with Trinidad & Tobago.
However, the Wales boss remained hopeful that the soon-to-be former Arsenal man would be fit to feature versus Slovakia.

‘It’s a blow’
But, as confirmed by Giggs during a press conference this morning, Ramsey’s injury concern appears worse than initially feared, with the midfielder having been forced to return to North London for treatment:
‘We hoped Aaron would make it but he has gone back to Arsenal.’
‘It’s a blow.’
‘We have plan B and we’ve worked on it during the week. He was in good form but it gives a chance for someone else.’
