Darcy Blake is pleased with Wales's victory over Scotland on Friday and praises Gareth Bale for his performance at the Cardiff City Stadium.

Wales defender Darcy Blake believes that winger Gareth Bale is one of the best players in the world.

The 23-year-old scored twice in the final 10 minutes for the Dragons in their 2-1 comeback victory over Scotland in a 2014 World Cup qualifier on Friday.

"I thought we deserved to win," Blake is quoted as saying in The Daily Mail. "We created a lot of chances. It was a sloppy goal at the back that we conceded.

"But we grew into the game and got stronger and Gareth Bale popped up with our winner at the end.

'He can run defenders, he causes them all kinds of problems, he's up there with the world's best. He was on it in this game, he put that goal in and it was brilliant."

Wales are currently fourth in Group A with three points from three matches.
