Bale is ready for Denmark and the ‘Eriksen’ factor

Gareth Bale and his Wales team are prepared for their last 16 game against everyone’s second favourite team in the tournament, saying ‘we won't underestimate Denmark’.

The Danes have rallied since the horrific collapse of Christian Eriksen in their opening game and Bale is aware how important the ‘Eriksen’ factor is in their approach to the match.

“Obviously we understand the situation that happened with them and we’ve sent all our best wishes to Christian,” Bale said.

“What a great job the Denmark team did with that. But come game day it will be just us and them on the pitch, and hopefully we can put a great performance in and get the job done.

“So they won’t be underestimated by us. We’ll be ready to go come kick-off and put in a big performance.”
