World Cup

Bale: I’m ready to face the United States in the 2022 World Cup.

Gareth Bale has confirmed his availability for Wales’ match against the United States on Monday.

This will be Wales’ first World Cup matc since Pelé scored to give Brazil a 1-0 quarterfinal victory in 1958.

The current Wales team is regarded as a golden generation, with stunning records.

They reached the semifinals of the 2016 European Championship before losing to eventual champion Portugal, and they qualified for last year’s pandemic-delayed Euro 2020, where they were eliminated by Denmark in the round of 16.

“It’s probably the biggest honour we could have for our country, qualifying for a World Cup, something we haven’t done in 64 years,” said Bale.

“It’s history in our country. Schools are going to stop to watch our games [the second group game against Iran kicks off at 10:00 GMT]. Kids are going to miss school, fortunately for them.

“It’s a massive piece of history in our country and something we have all wanted for a long time.

“We have the support of the nation back home, no matter what happens, as long as we give 100% our country will love us for that.”

England and Iran, who play earlier on Monday, join Wales and the United States in Group B.
