Bale to miss Wales’ Nations League clash against Ireland


Callum O'Dowda has been ruled out of the Republic of Ireland's Nations League match against Wales after suffering dizzy spells against Denmark on Saturday.

With their Uefa Nations League tie with the Republic of Ireland locked at 0-0, Wilson stepped up to fire Ryan Giggs' side in front to establish himself as a free-kick specialist. We set out to win the group.

Not only is relegation/promotion at stake, but also seeding for the upcoming Euro 2020 qualification draw. Essentially two wins in these next two games will leave Martin O'Neill's side just two games away from the Euros.

They beat Wales in Cardiff and beat Moldova in Dublin last October.

Ireland drew 0-0 with Denmark on Saturday night in the Aviva Stadium. If that is the case, there may be an improved performance against Wales tonight. With both Bale and Ramsey missing, Ireland had a real chance to get off the mark, but O'Neill seems unable to get a tune out of his dysfunctional side, while Keane's fierce attitude seems to do little in terms of rallying the players either.

Regular Ireland starters Seamus Coleman, Jonathan Walters miss the match with injury.

The Derby loan man started behind 19-year-old central striker Tyler Roberts, who has scored three goals in six games for Leeds United, and played the full 90 minutes.

Wales could have put the game beyond all doubt 15 minutes from time - David Brooks having a close-range shot blocked before James Chester headed wide from the resulting corner.

Meanwhile, Matt Doherty is expected to continue at right wing-back but Cyrus Christie should start in central midfield againafter shining in the unfamiliar role last time out.
