Bale out - Wales without Madrid man for final two qualifiers

Bale out - Wales without Madrid man for final two qualifiers

"The Football Association of Wales can confirm that Gareth Bale will miss the upcoming World Cup qualifiers against Georgia and Republic of Ireland", the federation said in a statement.

Gareth Bale has been ruled out of Wales' final two crucial World Cup qualifiers against Georgia and Ireland, opening up the possibility that one of football's biggest stars could be absent from Russian Federation next year.

Losing Bale for the Georgia game is not catastrophic, but it hurts their chances and anything other than a win will mean that they are likely to miss out on a place in Russian Federation.

Real Madrid winger Gareth Bale could miss his side's Champions League double-header with former club Tottenham Hotspur as a result of a calf injury.

The commission said: "We call on all relevant players to now move very swiftly from confrontation to dialogue ". He urged the European Union to "stop looking the other way" in Catalonia's bid to break away from Spain .

While Ireland are in a position of weakness in the group, Wales need to beat pesky Georgia on Friday to keep us at arm's length.

Gunter has again been ever-present for Wales in 2017 to take his number of caps to 81 - the second most by an outfield player, with only Gary Speed ahead of him on 85.

Real Madrid, meanwhile, will also be disappointed that another injury has hampered their No. 11.

His absence could mean a first worldwide start for Woodburn, whose goal off the bench against Austria in September catapulted him onto the big stage.

But Trump on Friday confirmed what Rossello's said about his administraiton's response efforts, saying he's been supportive. Let's just agree that last year's presidential candidates are handling this Puerto Rico crisis pretty differently.

"But I think I've gained the manager's trust and hopefully I've repaid him with performances and there is more to come".

It'd be a tough ask for Wales to emerge from those two matches with six points at full strength, but even tougher without their talisman.

That will be a more hard without the brilliant Bale.

However, today's news that Bale will miss out comes as a major lift.

Denver also benefited from strong special teams play, aside from one missed field goal (which could have wound up being costly). The offense started slow, but found life in a 99-yard touchdown drive highlighted by Johnny Holton's first career touchdown.
