The Welsh national football side is getting ready for their upcoming 2016 Euro’s qualifying match which is scheduled to be played against Belgium on November 16 with each nation in need of a victory that can aid in their progression and secure a promotion spot to the tournament which is going to be hosted by France.
Wales is so far going through a very positive group stages campaign as the Welsh team is at the top of group B with 7 points after 3 matches. The Welsh squad had to fight hard in order to defeat Cyprus in their latest qualifying match with goals from David Cotterill and Hal Robson-Kanu giving Wales the lead after 23 minutes but Cyprus responded with Vincent Laban.
Wales managed to keep the scoreboard displaying 2-1 until the last few seconds of the match as the squad of Chris Coleman claimed the victory but it was a hard fought battle as Wales had to play with 10 men on the pitch after Andy King received a red card at the 47th minute.
When the match was over Gareth Bale expressed how satisfied he was about what his teammates were able to accomplish despite having a numerical disadvantage in the pitch.
"It was a great start from us again. We came out of the blocks firing, like we wanted to," Bale told Sky Sports.
"We got a good start to the game, obviously a little mistake off a set-piece, but I think you can see how much the lads want it. I think you need a bit of luck sometimes. Obviously it didn't go for us today with the dismissal, but I think we showed hard work. Since the sending off, we worked hard as a team. I think we covered every blade of grass and showed how much we want it." Real Madrid’s Gareth Bale said.
