LONDON: Gareth Bale admits his international career is drawing to a close, with this World Cup qualifying campaign possibly his last appearance for Wales.
Wales meet the Czech Republic in Cardiff tonight in a bid to hunt for the first Group E point after defeat at the hands of Belgium in the first leg.
Wales still have Euro 2020 action postponed to this June, but Bale will turn 33 years old ahead of the 2020 World Cup in Qatar.
“I don’t think much about after this campaign. We’re getting older and maybe this is the last campaign.
“If it becomes a reality, it won’t change the way I think. I will still give 100 percent as usual.
“We still have a big tournament this summer and continue the qualifying campaign after that.
“I stay focused on the mission now. What happens in the future will still happen,” Bale said.
Bale started slowly in his return to Tottenham after being loaned out by Real Madrid.
Despite being said to have a knee injury problem, he still scored six goals for Spurs in six games in February and early March.
