Bale clarifies the future, following the news of his retirement

Gareth Bale has clarified his future at the Wales National Team, after leaving the interview for being asked about it at Euro 2020, insisting that he will continue to play for his country until he retires from football.

Wales failed to repeat the heroic performance when they reached the semi-finals of Euro 2016, after being easily defeated by Denmark in the 1/8 finals of Euro 2020 on Saturday.

Bale and friends suffered a deep 4-0 loss at Johan Cruyff Arena by the excellent Danes.

However, the focus after the match was not the defeat, but Bale’s future in the Welsh National Team.

When asked by BBC Sport if this was his last game for Wales, the Real Madrid winger was silent before abruptly leaving the interview, visibly angry with the way the question was asked.

Later, when asked by Belgian broadcaster S4C if he would wear the Wales captain’s armband in the World Cup qualifiers in September, the 31-year-old replied: “I want to keep playing.”

“People ask idiotic questions all the time, but of course I like to play for Wales. I will play for Wales until the day I end football.” he added.

Bale, who is 33 years old, has made 96 appearances for Wales so far.
