Bale Ruled Out Of 2018 World Cup Qualifiers

Wales have seven players carrying yellow cards into Friday's 2018 World Cup qualifier against Georgia in Tbilisi - skipper Ashley Williams, Aaron Ramsey, James Chester, Ben Davies, Joe Ledley, Andy King and Hal Robson-Kanu.

The challenge has been made all the harder without Gareth Bale, who misses both games with a calf injury, yet Coleman refused to dwell on that setback. "There are no excuses from us", Coleman said.

Wales have moved to put the record straight on Gareth Bale's injury ahead of their crunch World Cup qualifier in Georgia.

Tom Lawrence's superb first worldwide goal gave Wales a crucial 1-0 away win over Georgia as their bid to qualify for the World Cup was boosted despite the absence of injured talisman Gareth Bale.

Wales players and manager Chris Coleman wave to fans on a open top bus during the homecoming celebrations in Cardiff City centre. He won't be thinking this is his 50th cap - it's about what we need to do and how we can implement it. "If you are on a yellow and need to take another, so be it".

Therefore Wales' two wins against Moldova make no difference to their ranking, but sloppy draws against Georgia, Serbia and Austria could do real damage.

Mattis Warns Against US Pullout From Afghanistan, Says Afghan Forces Fully Engaged
The bumper-sticker version of the strategy is "4R+S", the secretary said: regionalize, realign, reinforce, reconcile and sustain. Mattis and Dunford billed the plan as a "conditions-based" strategy, not dependent on a hard timeline for withdrawal of troops.

"Add to that starlet Woodburn and the unknown quantity at this level of David Brooks, of Sheffield United, and Chris has all the ammunition to get three points on Friday, and that will tee up Monday night's game against Ireland".

"We didn't have that attitude maybe, myself included".

"Everyone is different and I tried to cover every base with yoga, acupuncture, ice baths, but what might work for some players might not for others". I remember the first game in Dublin when they weren't very respectful to our boys and to our supporters, and this squad won't have forgotten that.

"Georgia have got imagination, create chances and play risk football", Coleman said. We get a couple of good results at the end of the campaign and everybody gets excited and the next campaign "Wallop" ... after three games we're out of it.

Wales, bidding to reach the World Cup finals for the first time since 1958, would be guaranteed at least runners-up spot in the group providing they avoid defeat against Ireland.
