Wales throw a spanner in the ‘Gareth Bale is injured’ works
Gareth Bale has been named in Wales’ squad to face the Republic of Ireland on August 14.
The wantaway Tottenham star has barely featured in pre-season for his club side after missing all but one of their matches so far through injury.
The winger most recently missed the trip to Monaco because he was nursing a “slight injury”.
But national team boss Chris Coleman is happy to have a look at the 24-year-old’s condition for himself and has called him up for the forthcoming friendly.
OTP suspects of bout of Ryangiggsitis, a nasty condition that prevents you playing in non-competitive Wales matches, might be Bale’s next ailment.
