Wales manager Ryan Giggs has backed Gareth Bale to rediscover his form ahead of Tuesday’s 2020 European Qualifier against Hungary.
Wales dropped to third in Group E after Saturday’s 2-1 defeat to Croatia in Osijek and Giggs will need the Real Madrid man, who has not scored since mid-March to be in top form.
“I was happy with Gareth’s performance in Croatia, he had a couple of chances and on another day they go in,” Giggs told The Telegraph.
“Gareth grew into the game and that might be because of not playing for six weeks, which is understandable. Hopefully he is saving it for Hungary.
“Any team that plays against a team with Gareth in it will mark up him as a danger man. A lot of teams will stop him any way they can, it is up to us and Gareth to find a way around that. He is used to that, both at club and international level.”
