Although Wales had a good time at the Euro ’16 when it made it to the semi-finals, it faces a true test without Bale against Georgia Friday with the hope of securing a second appearance at the World Cup finals in Russia.
Chris Coleman’s team occupy the second position in Group D, with four points after leaders Serbia, and the possibility of booking a place in the play-offs is dependent on how they can sustain their current position.
They remain the runner-up with the fewest points and may not qualify if things were decided presently.
However, they have a day more to prepare ahead of other home nations. They will visit Georgia on Friday night.
It is not certain Gareth Bale would be in the team, as he is out with injury and also not fit for the Republic of Ireland match in Cardiff on Monday.
He has been said to have contributed to the successes of the Welsh team since 2013 and also tipped as a substantial player in Tottenham Hotspur’s match victories all the while he was with the Spurs. He has enjoyed good moments ever since.
