Stephen Ward believes teamwork can stop Bale threat


Allen and Ramsey are dangermen, however, Ireland defender Stephen Ward believes the main threat comes from the Real Madrid winger.

“I am sure they will try and get him on the ball as much as possible but it’s up to us to try to keep his effect on the game to a minimum,” says the 31-year-old defender.

“He is probably a step up from everything,” he says. “He is at one of the biggest clubs in the world and is playing well.

Gareth Bale plays free in attack in the Wales team and so a clash between these two players is very likely.
