"I think any team [would be scared of Bale]," he told Sky Sports News. "I've been fortunate enough to coach him, and he's unstoppable. When you stand next to him, you don't realise how big he is and how quick he is, so he's hard to stop. I can't see how this team can stop Gareth.
"We've got the best chance we've ever had to qualify, two teams qualify, and we've got Gareth Bale in the team, obviously, so I think the tactics will be to get the ball to Gareth.
"I would have thought there would goals in this one. This team they're playing against, they've not scored for four years, 18 games I think, so it's a good start for Wales."
