Wales given huge boost as Gareth Bale deemed fit to play against Denmark
Ryan Giggs will be able to call upon the services of talisman Gareth Bale tomorrow in their crunch match with Denmark.
The 29-year-old missed the fixtures against Ireland and Spain in the last international break due to an injury.
But having recovered from an ankle injury picked up on Sunday, Bale will be in contention to start against Denmark in a winner takes it all clash in the UEFA Nations League tomorrow.
Giggs said: “He’s good, he’s fine. He arrived here a bit later than the rest of the group, playing on Sunday evening. He’s looked good this week and he’s ready.”
Bale trained with his teammates in front of the media and was in good spirits, as he integrated into the squad well with the squad.
Wales will be without Chris Mepham and Neil Taylor who have withdrawn from the squad due to injury.
George Thomas will miss out on tomorrow’s clash with Denmark but could be in line to face Albania next Tuesday, having also suffered an ankle injury.
“George Thomas is not in the squad, he went over on his ankle at the weekend but that’s coming along nicely.
“He’s got a 50:50 chance for Albania, but everyone else is fine.”
The four-time Champions League winner Bale has been pinpointed as Wales’ main threat tomorrow evening but may have to share the limelight with Danish talisman Christian Eriksen
The Tottenham star stated the Welsh attacker wasn’t far off the standards of Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi.
But Eriksen has an admirer in Ryan Giggs, who praised his performance in the last meeting between the two sides.
“He was the difference without a shadow of a doubt.
“We have to be aware of his qualities. There’s one thing to have a plan to stop him.
“He’s one of the top Premier League performers and he’s done it for a consistent amount of time now.”
