Welsh Fans Petition UEFA To Nullify Ramsey’s Suspension Ahead Portugal Clash

Wales fans are pleading with UEFA to overturn Aaron Ramsey’s Euro 2016 suspension in order for him to play against Portugal.

 

Chris Coleman’s side face Portugal in the semi-finals in Lyon on Wednesday night, but Ramsey will play no part after picking up his second yellow of the tournament for deliberate handball in the 3-1 win over Belgium last week.

 

According to walesonline.co.uk, a fan Joe Williams has made a last-ditch attempt to get Ramsey back in action with a petition, which has gotten 3,675 signatures.

 

The petition claims: “This petition is for the yellow card unjustly given to Welsh footballer Aaron Ramsey to be overturned by the European football governing body UEFA, in order to allow him to play in the Uefa Euro 2016 Semi-Final; Wales v Portugal 6th July 2016.”

 

Ramsey is not the only Welsh player suspended for the game with defender Ben Davies also missing out after picking up his second yellow of the tournament against Belgium.

 

James Collins is expected to slot in at centre-half, but Chris Gunter could move infield, with Jazz Richards playing at right-back.
