Bale Ruled Out Of 2018 World Cup Qualifiers

The Welsh global will miss his country's final two World Cup qualifying games - at Georgia and home to the Republic of Ireland - with a strained calf muscle in his left leg.

"He did a real good job versus Austria in a tough game, he came off the pitch and Ben scored a famous goal". They are second in Group D, four points adrift of Serbia, and one ahead of Ireland, with a two-leg play-off next month looking like providing the most realistic path to Russian Federation 2018 for Wales or the Republic of Ireland. The Crusaders are undefeated in their last three games with ties against Austria, Moldova and the Republic of Ireland but should still struggle in this match against a much more potent Wales side. Wales and table-toppers Serbia are the only unbeaten nations in Group D going in the ninth matchday.

Therefore, the aim is clear. "Two games, two wins, and the play-offs!"

Otherwise second place in the group is pointless. They've got imagination, they create chances and they play risk football.

Coleman, however, is not thinking beyond Georgia and expects his players to do likewise.

But they will have to do just that if they are to set-up a make or break qualification clash with Ireland in Cardiff on Monday night.

'Gaz is a big miss for us.

Only eight of the nine second-place teams go through to November's playoffs, and since results gained against the bottom-ranked sides in each group don't count toward totals, it may take until full-time in Tuesday's set of qualifiers to work out who progresses.

And without Bale that is a real possibility.

Some of those companies have already cut off those parts of their supply chains, others said they are investigating the matter. Workers at the plant are not allowed to leave the compounds without permission and have no access to telephones or email.

Former Wales forward Malcolm Allen insists Wales can cope with the loss of Gareth Bale and qualify for the 2018 World Cup in Russian Federation.

Georgia are an improving team who are unbeaten in five games, including draws in their last three qualifiers. Sometimes you can have a little bit of discomfort elsewhere.

Georgia and Moldova now occupy the bottom two spots in Group D. The game will kick-off at 5 pm on October 6.

"Sam Vokes can be used as a target man and there's still a lot of quality, as Joe Allen, Ben Davies and Aaron Ramsey have shown, and they'll be even more important to the team".

No wonder Wales have drifted from odds-on to [2.04] and they still look risky even at the longer odds.

Germany are 2/7 chances, with Northern Ireland 12/1 in places and that latter price might tempt a few, while the 3/1 offered by Bet365 about the draw/NI double chance might be worth a look.

Under 2.5 goals is [1.55] and the case is obvious.

Wales have not won a competitive match away from home without Bale since 2009.

If that happens, the Scots can go second ahead of the final round of games if they can see off Slovakia in Glasgow. "I always think that if you want players to be missing in public then you are being very disrespectful to other players".
