Coleman: Wales Can Do Without Bale

Wales manager, Chris Coleman is insisting his side can cope with the absence of its star forward, Gareth Bale.

The world cup hopefuls will be without the Real Madrid forward for their last two qualifiers, due to a calf injury.

Wales are currently second on the table, four points behind Serbia and a point ahead of Ireland, as they’re holding on to a playoff spot.

Coleman, however, remains upbeat heading into Friday’s trip to Georgia.

“We are in good shape,” Coleman said. “It is all to play for.

“We have always been a little half a step behind, but we have injuries this campaign which we never had last campaign [for Euro 2016]. But you don’t get there with ones and twos, it is about everybody.

“This campaign we haven’t always had Bale, Aaron Ramsey or Joe Allen. They are obviously three super-special players and we haven’t always had them, but the lads who have come in have been absolutely magnificent.”
