Gareth Bale has said he has no plans to quit his playing career with Wales as long as he is still needed.

Gareth Bale was taken off the field at halftime of their last group game against England due to a hamstring issue.

Wales’ first World Cup since 1958 ended in a 3-0 defeat to the Three Lions, but Bale has confirmed he intends to continue his international career.

When asked if he will play in Wales’ Euro 2024 qualifying campaign, Bale, who currently plays for LAFC, told BBC Sport: “I’ll keep going as long as I can and as long as I’m wanted.” It’s a difficult time, but we’ll get through it.”

Wales failed to win a game in Qatar, losing to Iran and England after drawing with the United States.

While Bale is pleased to have led Wales to the World Cup, he admits they expected more from themselves in Qatar.

“Everyone is disappointed,” he said, “but we’re all proud of what we’ve accomplished to get here.” “We must consider how far we’ve come. We wanted to leave the group, but football is difficult. This tournament did not live up to our expectations.

“We’d have all pinched ourselves if you’d told us two years ago that we’d be playing in a World Cup.” We’ll all walk out of that locker room with our heads held high, proud of each other.

“This tournament has been difficult for us; we haven’t played well.” But we’ve given our all and will have no regrets.”
