Real Madrid superstar forward Gareth Bale sets his sight on the Euro 2016 final already.

The Welshman is relishing the opportunity to play at the semi finals, despite many writing the team off initially. Wales is set to play Portugal in the semi finals on Wednesday.

Bale speaks of endless jibes from his club team mates about their team’s chances at the tournament. He said: “I remember Toni Kroos [team mate at Real Madrid] saying we’d only have three games here. So it would be nice to meet him in the final.

Wales should not depend too much on Gareth Bale according to Marcel Desailly

Former French international Marcel Desailly has stated that Wales should become too much dependent on Gareth Bale if they want to be successful at the Euros.

Although Gareth Bale is a great player, you cannot win an international tournament just by relying on a single player. He believes that the team will need to develop a good team-spirit and a playing style that will allow them to beat the strongest sides.


Harry Redknapp who once expected to manage England has said he firmly believes that Wales can win this summer's massive clash at Euro 2016, when the possibility presents itself as many speculators are saying.

Speaking to the South Wales Argus, Redknapp said Gareth Bale brought through at Tottenham Hotspur can make the difference. Redknapp was speaking ahead of a special Euro 2016 Preview Dinner, a black tie event in support of Velindre Cancer Centre to be held at Cwmbran’s Parkway Hotel & Spa on Friday May 20th.

The experienced coach said:

Gareth Bale surprised with MC Semi-Final Appearance

Gareth Bale is surprised that Manchester City are making an appearance in the Champions League semi-final for the first time on Tuesday night.

The club were taken over by Middle East owners in 2008. Since then, a period of big spending has followed the club with many big names like Sergio Aguero and Yaya Touré coming to the club. Title success has also followed with the arrival of the quality players. City have won the League Cup, league title, and the FA Cup to complete the domestic set of trophies. However, they have underachieved a lot in Europe.

Barcelona took their advantage in the Spanish league

Barcelona took their advantage in the Spanish league to eight points after yet another victory.

This time it was a 4-0 thrashing of Eibar away from home. This means that the club has now won all their league matches since the draw against Espanyol at the start of 2016. This coupled with rivals like Atletico Madrid and Real Madrid dropping points consistently means that Barcelona can seal a second successive title much earlier than expected. There are still 10 games left in the Spanish league and if the Catalan club continue at this rate, they can seal the title with three games left.
