Gareth Bale: Wales are moving forward under Ryan Giggs

Gareth Bale has responded to fierce criticism of Wales’ recent performances by insisting they are making progress under Ryan Giggs. Bale rescued Wales on Friday with a late winner in the 2-1 victory over Azerbaijan – opponents ranked 109 in the world and 85 places below Giggs’ side. The goal kept Wales’ hopes of automatic Euro 2020 qualification alive, cutting the gap to Group E pacesetters Croatia and Hungary to three points at the halfway stage of the campaign. But Wales supporters were clearly disllusioned with the performance, taking to radio phone-in shows and social media to express their dissatisfaction.
