The best version of Gareth Bale , the one that Real Madrid does not surely enjoy since the Kiev Champions League final, appeared on the night in which Wales confirmed its presence in the European Championship next summer (the last selection that has sealed its classification direct), the second continental meeting followed by the small state of central United Kingdom.
Wales depended on itself to seal the ticket and, therefore, the iron star's main commitment to Hungary (2-0) was expected. The end, author of the assistance of the first goal of the game, Ramsey's work, was also emptied in defense. On the right, his favorite position, not only led the reins of the attack of his team, but also came to the rescue of his side in numerous defensive actions. With his country, Bale has shown that effort that is so demanded by Chamartín.
The good work of the Real Madrid footballer was mixed with his continuous gestures of pain . Nothing new As soon as the shock started, Bale touched the back of his left thigh and, minutes later, ached from his right foot. On this occasion, at least first, it seems that Zinedine Zidane will be able to count on him around this selection break.
It was his compatriot Ramsey the main supporter of Wales. In an action that was previously out of play (there is no VAR in the qualifying stage for the Eurocup), the Juventus striker finished off the net after a shipment from the left side and confirmed his double. Earlier, goalkeeper Hennessey saved the British box furniture with two feline interventions on the goal line.
The negative note of the night was re-starred by the Hungarian ultras, who exhibited several flares on the north bottom of Cardiff City Stadium . UEFA already punished Hungary for playing its home games behind closed doors for the behavior of its fans. Specifically, for the launch of objects, flares and racist chants in the match against Slovakia.
With the selection of Wales as the last one classified directly, the remaining four tickets will be played by sixteen countries in March 2020. The format will consist of four mini tournaments in Final Four format. The draw for this last previous phase will be held next Friday, November 22 and the final phase on Saturday 30.
In the rest of the day on Tuesday, Belgium beat Cyprus (6-1) with a double by De Bruyne; Germany beat Northern Ireland (6-1) and the Netherlands just needed to step on the accelerator to beat Estonia (5-0). Slovakia, which played the classification in the Welsh group, did no good to defeat Azerbaijan (2-0) and will be in the playoffs.
