Chris Coleman rejects Madrid's claims: "Bale didn't train with Wales"

Chris Coleman rejects Madrid's claims:

Giggs also spoke about Wales' chances of qualifying for the 2018 World Cup in Russian Federation.

One point from two games, in Georgia and at home to the Serbs, sees O'Neill's men sitting in third in a section they looked likely to win at one stage, having picked up nine points from their first four games, which included away ties in Austria and Serbia.

Bale, who joined the national team camp on Monday, did not play against Espanyol in a La Liga match due to an injury he sustained against Borussia Dortmund in a UEFA Champions League match.

Coleman's Dragons were playing catch-up after five draws at the start of their campaign before Ben Woodburn announced himself on the global stage last month.

'Gaz is a big miss for us, ' said the Everton defender.

Wales have drawn five of their eight games in Group D, and have only beaten Moldova on their travels, while the teams claimed a point each when they played in Cardiff last October.

Wales' hopes of qualifying for the 2018 World Cup have been dealt a huge blow after it was confirmed Real Madrid forward Gareth Bale has been ruled out of the remaining two qualifiers because of a calf injury.

But they will have to do just that if they are to set-up a make or break qualification clash with Ireland in Cardiff on Monday night.

"Of all the games in this campaign, the one we could have lost and the one we looked at in needing three points, was at home to Georgia", Coleman said. "If you are on a yellow and need to take another, so be it".

'It will be the team who wins the game, ' said the Wales captain. And let me tell you, David Brooks is a player that you're going to notice very, very quickly. "That's the attitude we'll have tomorrow, no doubt".

"Everyone is different and I tried to cover every base with yoga, acupuncture, ice baths, but what might work for some players might not for others".

"The Moldova game was very different to the Austria one, they sat deep and made it hard for us, but we got the win in the end".

"But let's get this Georgia game out of the way first".

And with Chris Coleman's side only just holding on to a play-off position in Group D, Bale's injury could cost Wales a World Cup spot.
