Wales captain Aaron Ramsey is calling for a strong finish to his side's Euro 2012 qualifying campaign, following victory over Switzerland.

Ramsey, 20, scored from the penalty spot in the 2-0 win at Swansea's Liberty Stadium.

The victory lifted Wales off the bottom of Group G, as they prepare to face Bulgaria on Tuesday.

"Hopefully we can take our form into the next game and show what we're capable of doing," said Ramsey.

Wales now have the chance to finish third in Group G despite suffering a miserable qualifying campaign.

Gary Speed's men lost their opening four games before beating Montenegro 2-1 in September.

A narrow 1-0 defeat followed against England before Ramsey and Gareth Bale scored to beat Switzerland and lift Wales off the bottom of the table.

"It was a great result for us," said the Arsenal midfielder.

"We worked hard and it came off tonight.

"I thought we produced some good attacking play.

"It's always nice to beat a top 20 team."

Switzerland remain third in Group G, but can now be caught by Wales ahead of the final round of group matches on Tuesday.

The Swiss host second-placed Montenegro, who have already secured a play-off place, while Wales travel to Sofia.

"We want to go into this game now, put in a similar sort of performance and work hard for each other," added Ramsey.

"And hopefully get another win over there."
