Tottenham forward, Gareth Bale has urged Wales to use the draw vs Switzerland as a springboard for better results. He recently revealed that he was proud of the way his team fought back after going behind.
According to him, Wales created very good chances during the game, and he hopes things will improve ahead of their next two group matches.
Bale added that both countries tried to play during the match, and the draw was a fair result.
His words, “Both teams tried to play, it was a little bit tense, but it’s not a bad result and we take the positives,”
“We wanted to win the game, we had chances but so did they.”
“When you go 1-0 down and you can crumble but we showed a lot of grit and character like always and we showed our class to fight back and get the goal. We worked very hard, it’s hard in this heat, I’m proud of the boys.”
“After the match we said we need to use this as a springboard. We now need to recover and move onto the next game.”
“It’s great personally, we’d have liked to win but we’ll take a draw to put us in a good position,”
“It’s never good going a goal down but to get one back and see the game out is a big positive for us.”
“It’s tough out there, but it is what we expected, we’ve been here for a week now. Obviously this is a big occasion and I’ve loved every second of it.”
