Wales Head Coach, Rob Page was delighted with Gareth Bale after the win over Turkey on Wednesday.
Despite Bale missing a penalty, the Real Madrid winger bagged two assists to help Wales secure a 2-0 victory.
“He wears the armband for a reason,” Page said. “Everyone in football gets setbacks, missing the penalty was a bitter blow but if he didn’t take the corner in the way he did and see the opportunity, we wouldn’t have got the second goal. Credit to him for that, and showing character.
“We changed it slightly towards the end, going to a back five, when Harry [Wilson] came on for [Ramsey]. We had to soak up their pressure, they had six up top at one stage, they had to go for it.
“Honestly, I’ve never seen anybody run so much as Connor Roberts. He’s the fittest man I’ve ever met in my life, so there was no holding him back, he saw the opportunity and so did Gareth, and pounced on it.”
