Bale ruled out of England clash

Blow for Wales as Gareth Bale ruled out of England clash - ESPN Soccernet
Tottenham winger Gareth Bale has been ruled out of Wales' Euro 2012 qualifier against England on Saturday with a hamstring injury.

Bale did not train on Wednesday, despite reports that he was injured during a session, and he has only recently returned from a back injury that kept him out for six weeks from the end of January until early March.

Crucially for fantasy managers:
The Tottenham winger will now return to London for treatment on Thursday morning, but it is not yet clear whether he will be fit in time for Tottenham's Champions League quarter-final first leg against Real Madrid on April 5.

Of course that match is after Spurs' April 2 match at Wigan. #latefitnesstest

    Any word on whether Tevez is out?

  2. Last I read, Tevez was already doubtful for the Sunderland match.

    If I were a betting man, I would wager that this is just a pretext. I was surprised when they didn't announce something like this sooner, to be quite honest.
