Bale backed to feature in 'many more' Wales squads as Mepham reacts to retirement talk


An international colleague of the Real Madrid forward cannot see a talismanic figure turning his back on his country

Gareth Bale is being backed to grace "many more" Wales squads, with Chris Mepham reading little into reports suggesting that the Real Madrid star has been mulling over his international future.

At 31 years of age, a man with 96 caps to his name has seen another campaign at a major tournament come to a close, with Rob Page's side suffering a 4-0 defeat to Denmark in the last 16 at Euro 2020.

Bale walked away from questions on his future at the end of that contest, but has since come out and said that he will remain in contention with his country for as long as his career at the top continues.
