. . . Swans defender looks ahead to Euro test in Naples


Angel Rangel believes “anything is possible” as Swansea City look to keep their European dream alive in Napoli.
The Swans travel to Naples for the return leg of their Europa League last 32 tie at the Stadio San Paolo on Thursday (6pm GMT).
An enthralling first leg ended goalless at the Liberty, though the Swans dominated possession and chances on the night.
And Rangel feels the confidence gained from that performance means the Swans, who remain underdogs to progress, have everything to play for.
“Anything is possible,” said the right-back. “Keeping a clean sheet in the first leg was very pleasing and it means we have everything to play for in the second leg.
“In Italy it will be very difficult and I’m sure it will be an intimidating atmosphere.
“But we know on the pitch it’s 11 versus 11 and if we play with the same resilience and quality then we have a chance.
“We did that against Chelsea in the cup last season so we know we can achieve it.
“We have to believe in ourselves because what we achieved last week in the first leg was a big achievement – one probably which we haven’t fully appreciated yet.”

With over 800 Swans fans set to make the journey to Naples, Rangel admits it will give Garry Monk’s side a real boost at the Stadio San Paolo as they look to upset the odds.
He added: “The support at the Liberty last week was unbelievable. What an atmosphere!
“We appreciate how important the Jack Army is to us.
“We know they have been with us throughout the divisions and now we are in the Europa League last 32.
“So we are in this together on this fantastic journey, and hopefully we can give them another night to remember.”

Please note, the league fixture scheduled at Arsenal on Saturday, March 8 will be played at a later date, which is still to be confirmed.
This is due to the Gunners' involvement in the FA Cup sixth round on that day.
