Bale hails Wales victory over Czech Republic

Gareth Bale was delighted with Wales’ 1-0 World Cup qualifier win over the Czech Republic on Tuesday night.

“We didn’t get off to the best start against Belgium so it was massively important to get the win tonight,” said on-loan Tottenham forward Bale.

“It was a massive result. We showed a lot of heart and desire to match a very physical team.

“It was very chaotic, especially second half, but we were ready and kept going until the end and the most important thing is to get that winner.”

David James’ 81st-minute goal gave them a much-needed three points, moving them up to third place in Group E.
