Before kick-off, the Welsh fans unveiled several protest banners following comments made by Ramsey and Gareth Bale suggesting that they wish to be allowed to play a part in the Team GB at the Olympics.
However, Ramsey was unfazed by the criticism and dominated in midfield as he captained Wales to a 4-1 win over Norway in Cardiff.
Theo Walcott played the first half as England defied the odds to beat Spain 1-0 win at Wembley. Frank Lampard capitalised on a fortunate bounce off the post from Darren Bent’s header, and Cesc Fabregas wasted a a golden opportunity to score a late equaliser (which was probably karma for having such a ridiculous haircut and leaving Arsenal).
Wojciech Szczesny couldn’t waste the opportunity to have a dig at our former captain, posting on his Twitter page: ‘Well done England for beating Spain, but someone has to tell Cesc to sort out his hair.‘
Speaking of ridiculous haircuts, Gervinho was in action as the Ivory Coast drew 1-1 draw with South Africa at the Nelson Mandela Bay Stadium in Port Elizabeth. Gervinho put the South African defence under a lot of pressure, eventually forcing Siboniso Gaxa into heading the ball into his own net.
