Welsh star Joe Allen has said that the national team can cope without star forward Gareth Bale as they play a crucial World Cup qualifier against Serbia on Sunday.
Serbia demolished Wales 6-1 in 2012 with Allen describing that night as his “worst night in a Welsh shirt.” He adds that he believes the memories of that day would help the team mentally as they face the Serbs.
Wales are four points behind them in Group D. Republic of Ireland are ahead of them as well so a victory is needed for their World Cup hopes to remain intact. After their strong display at Euro 2016 the team slumped into poor form which they are trying hard to make up for. Bale’s second yellow card in March against Rep of Ireland means they would not have their playmaker. (more…)

Welshman Gareth Bale is set to inspire Real Madrid to their first La Liga win in eight years in the absence of teammate Cristiano Ronaldo who is out injured.
The 27-year old led Wales to European glory when they broke their record of over 58 years at the Euro 2016 in France when they reached the semi finals. Sportsmail reported that the Santiago Bernabeu management is set to offer the player a ‘contract for life,’ in lieu of the plans they had for him. It shows the management wants him to be the next big thing after the 31-year old Ronaldo retires.
Welsh superstar player Gareth Bale is all worried that the injury Real Madrid team mate Cristiano Ronaldo sustained at the final of the Euro 2016 tournament might affect his performance as they start preparations for the next season.
“Terrible to see Cris come off like that. Hope it’s nothing too bad,” Bale posted on Twitter. Real Madrid won the UEFA Champions League in the last campaign, making it the second in three years but they have failed to win the Spanish La Liga for years now. The last time they lifted the local league was when they won it under former manager Jose Mourinho, who is now with Manchester United.
Current manager Zinedine Zidane was able to transform the fortunes of the club when he took over in the last season but will likely make the La Liga a priority this year. Their chief rival Barcelona have won the title numerous times in recent years are going to be the main contender in the coming season, so Real Madrid would not be able to afford its most consistent goal scorer for six years to be injured as they kick off the campaign next month.

He said that one player cannot make a team but that a single player can surely inspire others. He believes that he will be the one that will inspire Wales to beat England at the Euros.
He said that his presence in the team would cause the other players to believe that anything can happen on the pitch. He will inspire the others and make Wales quite difficult to beat in France. Zidane said he was pleased that Bale will be participating at the Euros. For him, he is one of the best players in the world and that he need to take part in such event on a regular basis. He said that Bale will benefit from the experience of such a tournament and that he hopes that he will be able to participate at the next World Cup. (more…)

“The attacking players we have are very special, but we defenders are going to have to do a big job in Manchester,” Ramos added.
