Un­fit Bale called up by Wales for vi­tal games

The National - News - - SPORT -

Gareth Bale, who is strug­gling with a calf prob­lem, has been in­cluded in the Wales squad for their fi­nal two Euro 2020 qual­i­fiers against Azer­bai­jan and Hun­gary. The Real Madrid player, 30, has not played since scor­ing for Wales in the 1-1 draw with Croa­tia on Oc­to­ber 13, and is con­sid­ered a doubt for both the game in Azer­bai­jan and at home to Hun­gary. Wales are presently fourth in their group, six points adrift of lead­ers Croa­tia and four shy of sec­ond-placed Hun­gary. Both Croa­tia and Hun­gary have just one game re­main­ing.
