Wales coach Chris Coleman praises Gareth Bale for his performance against Scotland on Friday that saw the Dragons bag a 2-1 comeback win in Cardiff.

Wales coach Chris Coleman has hailed winger Gareth Bale as "a special player" following his performance against Scotland on Friday.

The 23-year-old scored twice in the final 10 minutes at the Cardiff City Stadium, as the Dragons came from a goal down to win their 2014 World Cup qualifier 2-1.

"People will talk about the winner, which is a great goal, but when we are 1-0 down in a home nation derby and we have lost the last few games, to step up and take the penalty - it was a great execution, nice and composed," Coleman is quoted as saying by the BBC.

"He keeps on producing swashbuckling performances and doing things that not many other players are capable of doing.

"He's a special player, we all know that, and if you think, he is 23 - he has not even peaked yet. He is an amazing player."

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