Ramsey trumpets Bale quality

Bale: Two wins should do it

Wales captain Aaron Ramsey says he would not swap Gareth Bale for any of Belgium's stars ahead of their opening World Cup qualifier in Cardiff on Friday evening.

Belgium, favourites to top Group A, boast a plethora of Premier League acts, such as Vincent Kompany, Eden Hazard, Thomas Vermaelen, Jan Vertonghen, Marouane Fellaini, Kevin Mirallas and Mousa Dembele.

Ramsey, however, feels Tottenham winger and countryman Bale has few equals in the final third.

"I personally wouldn't (swap him), no," said Ramsey.

"He has been doing what he does for a couple of years, creating and scoring goals and always being a threat to the opposition.

"He gets in behind teams and takes on players and has the quality to whip in a cross, or come inside and shoot from distance and cause a problem for the keeper.

"He can create things and he has shown that against top quality defenders. He has got a few hat-tricks, including one against Inter Milan where he tore Maicon apart.

"He has done it a number of times, he has scored a lot of goals and created a lot of chances and he is a player who could be key to unlocking a defence.

"You can't say he has had a slow start to the season, he has created chances in the games I have seen. Tottenham have had a tough start to the season but he has shown on the training pitch what quality he has."

Croatia, Serbia, Scotland and Macedonia make up the rest of Group A.
