Euro 2020 qualifier: Slovakia v Wales
Venue: Anton Malatinský Stadium, Trnava Date: Thursday, 10 October Kick-off: 19:45 BST

Wales will be without Juventus midfielder Aaron Ramsey for Thursday’s Euro 2020 qualifier against Slovakia.

The 28-year-old did not travel with the rest of the squad because of concerns over his fitness.

However, Wales manager is hopeful Ramsey will be available for Sunday’s match with Croatia in Cardiff.

“He felt a bit of tightness in his adductor (muscle). He trained today and we’re hopeful he’ll play on Sunday,” Giggs said.

“The physio has stayed back to work with him for a couple of days.”

Ramsey is yet to feature in Euro 2020 qualifying because of injury and last played for Wales in November 2018.

He sat out Juventus’ win over on Sunday, with coach saying the midfielder, who was on the bench, felt a twinge in his abductor muscle while warming up at half-time.

Ramsey has impressed in Italy since making his Juve debut on 18 September, scoring once in five appearances for the club he joined on a free transfer in the summer.
