Wales interim boss Robert Page has revealed that Gareth Bale has come through Tottenham’s match against West Bromwich Albion unscathed and is part of the squad for the upcoming international fixtures (BBC).
Bale made his first Premier League start on Sunday since his return to North London in what was an extremely difficult game, with the Baggies denying Tottenham’s forwards space to run in-behind.
The Welshman did have a few half-chances but failed to impact the game substantially before being withdrawn with little over ten minutes to go.
The 31-year-old was pictured with an icepack on his ankle after coming off in the 78th minute at The Hawthorns.
However, Page, who is in charge of Wales for their upcoming friendly against the United States as well as the Nations League double-header against the Republic of Ireland and Finland, confirmed that only Juventus midfielder Aaron Ramsey and Swansea defender Ben Cabango are the only players who withdrew from the squad.
He was quoted by BBC as saying: “We have met up tonight and thankfully everybody else has come through unscathed. That’s the good news.”
Page has temporarily been given the reigns in Ryan Giggs’ absence after the former Man Utd winger withdrew from the current international camp, despite denying an allegation of assault made against him.
