Bale named in Wales squad despite injury layoff
Cardiff, Nov. 5 (IANS): Despite not playing for Real Madrid since his country’s 1-1 draw with Croatia last month, Wales forward Gareth Bale was on Tuesday named in the squad for their decisive Euro 2020 qualifiers.
Wales need a victory in Azerbaijan on November 16 and then beat Hungary at home to have any chance of qualifying.
According to a BBC report, Juventus midfielder Aaron Ramsey has also been included after missing October’s internationals with injury.
“That’s the ideal situation, that he gets minutes before he meets us,” Wales manager Ryan Giggs said.
“But it is literally day by day that we’re monitoring it, but that’s what we’re hoping – that he gets some action this weekend.”
Real take on Eibar on Saturday and Giggs hopes the forward will play a part in the Spanish La Liga game.
