Gareth Bale’s Champions League Post-Match Interview: Wales Can Win Euro 2016

Gareth Bale’s Champions League Post-Match Interview: Wales Can Win Euro 2016

Gareth Bale claimed his second Champions League winner’s medal last night – then set his sights on winning the Euros with Wales.

The Real Madrid winger endured a gruelling 120 minutes against city rivals Atletico in Milan before a dramatic penalty shootout decided the match.

Bale converted from the spot during the penalties before Cristiano Ronaldo stepped up to slot home the winner – confirming the 11th European Cup win in Real’s history.

Welshman Bale admitted after the match that it had taken its toll on him in extra time as he battled with cramp in the latter stages of the game.

And after wrapping up his second UCL triumph in three seasons at Madrid, Bale turned his attentions to this summer’s Euro 2016 finals in France with the Welsh national side.

In his post-match interview, Bale was asked about representing his country at a major finals.

He said: “We’ll be going for that title. Why not?”

Bale is high on confidence following Madrid’s latest European win.

But for Wales to stand any chance of Euro 2016 glory, they’ll have to come through a group stage which will see them clash with England, Russia and Slovakia.
