Few would have expected Wales to qualify for a major international tournament but the Welsh squad impressed during qualifying and have one of the best players in world football in Gareth Bale. Bale is vitally important to his country, and while comparisons will be drawn with Cristiano Ronaldo and his Portugal team, Bale seems to play in a much more unified team than his Madrid teammate. Bale was unstoppable at times during qualifying and scored seven goals for his country as the focal point of their attack. Bale doesn’t have to do it alone and has some excellent players around him including Aaron Ramsey and Ashley Williams. Many people are talking about Wales as a team which could do well in the tournament and Bale will be a big part of that.
