Gareth Bale reveals his big fears ahead of Qatar 2022 World Cup

Welshman Gareth Bale, the Los Angeles American soccer team, who led his team to the Cup title, confirmed that it was mentally difficult to maintain focus before the start of the 2022 Qatar World Cup.

The World Cup will begin in Qatar on November 20 and Bale is expected to lead Wales in their second World Cup appearance.

Bale left Real Madrid to join the Los Angeles ranks on a free deal midway through the 2022 MLS season in July.

Bale, 33, starred for Los Angeles on Saturday, participating as a substitute to score an extra-time equalizer against Philadelphia Union in the Cup to make it 3/3, and although the team was playing without goalkeeper Maxime Krebiao, because of his dismissal in the meeting, the team was able to win the shootout.

Bell can now fully shift his focus to equip himself for Wales’ first World Cup match – against the US team on 21 November, and the group also includes England and Iran.

Bell told a press conference: “I feel better as time passes. I had a few setbacks, and I had a mild bruise a few weeks ago, which kept me out for 10 days “.

He added: “It was mentally difficult, as the World Cup approached – you see many players being left out, missing the World Cup.”

“So it was mentally difficult, I’m sure that was the case for many players, as the World Cup approached, so certainly it was in my mind and I was trying to confirm that I was 100 percent ready.”

“I felt good to come and help the team, and we were happy to be crowned with the trophy.”

Asking if he was ready, Bale said: “I’m not 100 percent ready at this moment, I’m still in the process of getting fit, I’ve got some problems like most players, but we’ve talked about whether I need to get involved in the last 20 or 30 minutes, and then I’m available.”

He added: “I was able to get involved and give my best, and I’m glad I scored, so I’m here, I think.”
