Bale to miss Ir­ish clash

Daily Dispatch - - Sport -

Ryan Giggs ex­pects Gareth Bale to miss Wales’ Na­tions League clash against the Repub­lic of Ire­land on Tues­day.

Bale was side­lined for Wales’ 4-1 friendly de­feat against Spain in Cardiff on Thurs­day af­ter ag­gra­vat­ing a groin in­jury while play­ing for Real Madrid against Alaves last week­end.

The 29-year-old had hoped to re­cover for his coun­try’s trip to Dublin next week but the Wales man­ager ad­mit­ted he doesn’t ex­pect his star to be back in time.

“We will make a de­ci­sion in the next cou­ple of days,” Giggs said af­ter the Spain match.

Bale scored four goals in his first nine ap­pear­ances for Real this sea­son but has been both­ered by the in­jury for weeks. —AFP
