After being chosen in Robert Page’s team for the World Cup qualifiers against Belarus and Belgium, Gareth Bale is “raring to go” and on track to win his 100th cap for Wales. Bale has been out since September 8th after suffering a “significant hamstring tear,” according to Page.
However, Real Madrid manager Carlo Ancelotti has stated that the forward may play in Saturday’s La Liga match against Rayo Vallecano, and Wales manager Gareth Southgate has placed the 32-year-old in a 28-man squad for the crucial double-header. Bale would only be the second Welshman to earn 100 caps, following Chris Gunter, who did so in March.
“Gareth is in a good place. He’s exactly where we and the medical team thought he should be,” Page said. “I spoke to him on Saturday and he’s raring to go. He’s back on the grass and doing absolutely everything possible to get himself 100% fit. He’s not in full-time training yet, but we’ve got another week.”
