Gareth Bale to miss England Match

Its been announced today Tottenham Hotspur winger Gareth Bale will miss the Euro2012 qualifier against England with a hamstring injury.
The lay off comes as a major blow for Wales manager Gary Speed just days before he has to prepare his squad to face England and was hoping to select Bale has he had been in excellent form all season.

"Due to a hamstring problem, Gareth Bale has had to withdraw from the Wales squad to face England," a Football Association of Wales statement said.
"He felt tight last week during training with his club.
"After playing 90 minutes on Saturday he felt some muscle tightness. Initially, this was expected to be muscle soreness after playing his first game.
"On joining up with the Welsh squad he was kept off his feet in training for two days to recover.
"As he still felt tight in the warm-up on Tuesday, Gareth was pulled out of the session.
"He did not train at all on Wednesday and was sent for a scan.
"The scan revealed that Gareth Bale picked up his injury last week."


  1. It's gotta suck for Wales, Gareth Bale is an incredible football player. He is one of the greatest players on Tottenham right now. I kinda hoped Milan would advance instead of the spurs, but it's all good.

  2. I'm all good with Milan advancing haha!

  3. Damn that must stuck to lose such a valuable player like that. Hope he gets well soon.

  4. Thanks for the update! Never would have heard this elsewhere

  5. Wow. What an unfortunate time to get an injury. I sympathize for the player as well, it would be extremely annoying to be unable to play after going through all that work and games and endless training.

    Hopefully he'll recover soon.

  6. Shame, but Bale will get his chance. He's shaping up to be one of the better players in the England squad.
