Wales forward Gareth Bale was emotional and exhausted in the wake of his nation’s painful defeat to Iran on Friday. The Dragons now have a mountain to climb if they are to make it out of Group B, with a win against England next week an absolute minimum requirement for Rob Page’s side. 

“It’s gutting,” Bale told the BBC after the final whistle. “We’re gutted, there’s no other way to say it. We fought until the last second but it’s one of those things that’s difficult to take. We have to recover, we have to go again. We have to pick ourselves up straight away which is going to be difficult. 

“We have one game left and we have to be positive. We’re still trying to enjoy the occasion as well. It’s going to be difficult, for sure, it depends on the other game and we’ll see. I haven’t seen the red card so I don’t know whether it’s the right decision. 

“But, obviously, a red card changes the game completely. We let the first one in and the second one doesn’t matter.”
