Wales and Real Madrid midfielder Gareth Bale believes that the Wales national team can still qualify for the World Cup in Russia despite their poor run of form.
Indeed Wales has failed to replicate the good form that they showed in the Euros in France and currently find themselves trailing in the qualifying table for the 2018 World Cup.
However, Gareth Bale believes that the team can still make it to the World Cup and they will have to keep fighting until the end. He believes that there is some good quality in the team and that the players will have to believe in themselves if they want to make it.
Gareth Bale said that the players should keep working hard and keep believing that they can qualify for the World Cup.
He said that the players must continue to give everything on the pitch in order to win games and they might end up getting some luck in the end.
Although Wales remain undefeated in the qualifying campaign, they have drawn too many matches, and they currently trailed the leaders by four points.
The only way to qualify will be to beat the Republic of Ireland away in March, and the Wales manager Chris Coleman believes that his team can accomplish his feat.
He said that he has some good players in his team and that they are used to this level of competition. He admitted that it would be difficult to get a result in Ireland, but they will have to fight if they want to make it to the World Cup.
He said that the Republic of Ireland has made a good start to their qualifying campaign and that they deserve to be leaders at this stage. However, he wants his players to give a real fight in order to win the game.
