Bale spearheads Wales squad for Israel qualifier


Gareth Bale, Aaron Ramsey and Joe Allen have been included in the Wales squad for the forthcoming Euro 2016 qualifier against Israel in Haifa.

Bale has come under fire for recent performances for Real Madrid, but manager Chris Coleman had no hesistation in naming the former Spurs star in his squad.

Israel top Group B with a 100 per cent record from their first three games, and Eli Guttman's squad received a boost in the build-up to the match on March 28 after climbing six place in the FIFA rankings.

Israel, who also host Belgium at the end of the month, have risen six place to 26th - its highest ranking since 2007.
