What has Gareth Bale said ahead of Wales v Denmark?

Gareth Bale, who was on loan at Tottenham Hotspur from Real Madrid last season, sais Wales have embraced the underdog tag ahead of the Denmark game.

Bale said: “We’re always the underdogs and used to that tag. It doesn’t make a difference to us.

“Obviously we understand the situation that happened with them and we’ve sent all our best wishes to Christian [Eriksen]. What a great job the Denmark team did with that. But it won’t have any bearing on the game.

"The players have been in situations before where teams are favourites and supported more. Against Turkey they had 18,000 fans in the stadium, so it makes no difference. When it comes to kick-off it will be just us players on the pitch focusing on the game.”
