Gareth Bale says it is 'surreal' to be a Wales elder ahead of Finland clash

Gareth Bale has paid tribute to his country's supporters and said it is "surreal" to be one of Wales' senior players ahead of their against Finland. Bale – who is contracted to Real until June 2022 – has fallen out of favour under manager Zinedine Zidane and played just 48 minutes of Madrid’s 12 games when the Spanish season resumed after the coronavirus lockdown. Zidane accused Bale of not wanting to play in the Champions League tie with Manchester City, but the Wales forward has hit back by saying Real have stopped him leaving Spain on various occasions.
