Chris Coleman: 'Gareth Bale gives us psychological edge'

Wales boss Chris Coleman feels that Gareth Bale's ability gives his side a psychological edge over their opponents every time that they take the field.

Wales boss Chris Coleman believes that the world-class ability of Gareth Bale gives his side a psychological boost heading into their matches.

The 25-year-old has carved out a reputation as one of the best players in the world with his performances for Real Madrid in La Liga and the Champions League, and has taken his form into international games.

Coleman told reporters: "He's one of the best players in the world. He can score a goal out of nothing or create a goal out of nothing.

"If you've got someone with that ability, it's not just what he gives to your own players, it's what he does to the opposition.

"When the opposition walk on to the pitch knowing they're up against someone like that, psychologically it's fantastic. It's a huge boost for us."

Wales face Bosnia-Herzegovina in their second Euro 2016 qualifying clash later today.
