Gareth Bale dismisses injury fears on Wales duty

Gareth Bale has dismissed concerns over an injury he suffered on international duty with Wales.

The Real Madrid star pulled up with a knee injury during Wales' 1-1 Euro 2020 qualifying game away in Slovakia on October 10th, but he had moved to ease worries that he is set for a spell on the sidelines.

"I am fine, and fit to play.

"I get a knock on the knee, but some ice at the end of the game has sorted the issue."

Bale was booked in a bad tempered game in Trnava, and he added that he was relieved not to receive a second yellow card for a late foul on Inter Milan defender Milan Skriniar.

The 30-year old will remain with Ryan Giggs' squad for the second qualifier on October 13th, as they welcome group leaders Croatia – and Real Madrid team mate Luka Modric – to Cardiff.

Wales are currently fourth in Group F, and they need a positive result against the World Cup finalists to keep their Euro 2020 qualification hopes alive.
