Gareth Bale insists that Wales have their complete focus on winning their World Cup qualifying group. Belgium is leading their group at the moment and has scored 20 goals in their five games so far. They have won four games and drew one game and are sitting atop the table with 13 points from five games. Wales are set to take on bottom of the table Estonia in one of their two games in hand.
“We’re fully focused on trying to win the group,” Wales captain Gareth Bale said. “If we win every game, we qualify. In a way, it’s still in our hands but there’s a long way to go. We can’t look two months down the line. We need to focus on the next game, which is Estonia, hopefully, get three points and move on to the next one. We’re purely focused on the next game. I know it’s a cliche and everyone says it, but we can’t look past that because against Belarus everyone was expecting us to win and it turned out to be one of the hardest games.”
“It’s not something I really like. I like the tradition of every four years,” Bale said. “It has that prestige like the Olympics where it comes around every four years and it feels that little bit more special because it’s not happening too often. I don’t really like that every two years because it loses that bit of history, especially the fact it is over four years and it’s a long time to the next one.”
