Wales winger Gareth Bale has praised the spirit of his teammates after they came from 1-0 behind to beat Scotland 2-1 on Friday night.

Bale, who scored a penalty to equalise and hit a late winner, said that the players have put right the defeat to Serbia in their last game.

"We fought back like men tonight and got a great result."
