Gareth Bale has triumphed in his physical struggle and is set to complete a “incredible journey” by earning his 100th Wales cap on Saturday.
Bale made his debut for Wales against Trinidad and Tobago in a friendly match in May 2006, at the tender age of 16 years and 315 days.
After Chris Gunter, Bale will become the second Welshman to hit the three-figure mark after a period of more than 15 years.
“It has been an incredible journey and one that started very young,” said Bale, Wales’ record scorer with 36 goals.
“To get 100 caps will personally be an incredible achievement and one you never think about when you start out.
