Our match prediction:
Wales and Northern Ireland, the two teams that will participate at the 2016 European Championship finals, take on each other in a friendly game at Cardiff City Stadium. Chris Coleman’s troops suffered a 3-2 loss to Netherlands in their last warm-up game and they are determined to bounce back from the defeat. Gareth Bale has overcome his injury and, no doubt, all eyes will be on the Real Madrid superstar, who found the net in a 4-0 win over Sevilla at the weekend. Northern Ireland impressed in the Euro 2016 qualifiers, but many people believe that the team are going to struggle at the 2016 European Championship finals. Michael O’Neill want to prove the doubters wrong, but given that the Dragons are a real force to be reckoned with at home, we predict that Chris Coleman’s charges will win Thursday’s football match.
Highligted Player (Gareth Bale):
Gareth Bale is a Welsh footballer who plays for Real Madrid as a winger. “Bailo” was born in Cardiff on 16 July, 1989 and, as expected, he played for his home-town club Cardiff Civil Service at the start of his youth career. He moved to Southampton’s football academy in 1999 and he made a great progress during his spell with the Saints. Bale made 40 league appearances for the first team and it has to be noted that he played as a full back at the start of his senior career. In 2007 he signed a contract with Tottenham Hotspur and he was producing thrilling performances with the White Hart Lane outfit from 2007 to 2013. Real Madrid chiefs did well to sign him on 1 September, 2013 for a fee of €91 million. The Welsh winger won two Champions League trophies with los Blancos (2013/2014, 2015/2016) and, speaking of his international career, he made it to the European Championship finals with Wales. The Welsh ace scored three goals at the showpiece tournament in France as the Dragons reached the semi-final.
