WALES hero Gareth Bale is delaying retirement thoughts as the ‘greatest result in Welsh football history’ sent the Dragons to the World Cup.
But having won the Champions League five times with Real, Bale revealed Wales’ triumph at Cardiff City Stadium on Sunday fulfilled his biggest remaining dream in football.
Sixteen years and 103 caps after his international debut, he told Sky Sports: “The result is the greatest in Welsh football history.
“We’re going to a World Cup! It means everything, what dreams are made of,
“We’ve been working towards it since I first came in here.
“Words can’t describe how we feel at the moment.”
Bale had already made it clear he was unlikely to quit playing this summer.
And asked if Wales making it to Qatar this winter has further extended his career, he responded: “Maybe for a little bit!”
Another long-running Wales superstar with an uncertain club future was equally ecstatic with victory.
“Little old Wales in a World Cup! To get to three major tournaments, and top it off with a World Cup is something else.”
And defender Ethan Ampadu – on loan at Venezia from Chelsea – admitted Wales hd to come through ‘maybe the worst second half that we’ve had’.
He told BBC Radio Wales: “We’re going to the World Cup, that’s all that matters.
“We are going to enjoy the time with the fans now and enjoy getting there.”
