New Bale injury a concern for Wales

Gareth Bale looks set to miss Real Madrid’s La Liga clash with Espanyol on Sunday, sparking fears he could also miss out on two crucial World Cup qualifiers for Wales next week. Bale limped off with a calf strain after scoring and providing an assist for Cristiano Ronaldo as Madrid beat Borussia Dortmund 3-1 in the Champions League on Wednesday. “We will see tomorrow. It is a strain, nothing important but, as always, we don’t like to take risks when a player has a small issue,” Zidane said.
