Bale out of Wales squad for friendly

Gareth Bale has pulled out of the Wales squad for next week's friendly against Holland.

The winger scored Real Madrid's crucial second goal in extra-time which allowed his side to go on to win 4-1 against city rivals Atletico and secure the club's 10th European Cup on Saturday.

However, he has withdrawn from the group Chris Coleman is taking to Amsterdam because of injury.

Bale has been troubled with a leg muscle injury for a few weeks and his place in the squad will be taken by Fulham's George Williams."
