Bale storms out of interview after Wales’ humiliating Euro elimination

Sun 27 June 2021 | 7:01

Denmark striker Kasper Dolberg described his two goals against Wales as surreal after helping his side qualify for the Euro 2020 quarter-finals with a 4-0 victory.

After their defeat to Italy in the group stage, 

the Euro 2020 round of 16 defeat

 brought up the first time

Wales

have lost successive matches at a major tournament. The game also set another record as

Denmark

became the first team to score four or more goals in consecutive matches in European Championship history.

 

Bale

, who’s expected at

Real Madrid’s

camp after the summer break, said before the tournament that he had made a decision on his club future. However, he refused to comment on his future in his 

BBC Sport’s post-match interview.

 

Wales' record goalscorer said in his post-match interview: "Of course, not how we wanted the game to go.

"We started very well the first 25 minutes. Conceded a goal and the game changed a little bit. We came out in the second half trying to play but unfortunately made a mistake to concede the goal which I guess killed the momentum on our side.

"To finish the game how we did was disappointing. The boys are frustrated and angry but I’d rather us go out like that kicking and screaming than laying off and doing nothing.

"Of course we missed an opportunity but one thing we can't fault is the effort, that's the minimum requirement of this group."

 

Despite what seemed to be a clear foul on Kieffer Moore in the build-up, referee allowed

Denmark’s second goal to stand

as Welshmen became furious with the decision.

"If you play the ball through the back of someone it's a foul,"

Bale

added.

"I thought like the referee was being influenced by a lot of supporters here but I guess it is what it is, there's no point making excuses now. It's disappointing, that's all I can say."

Then, Bale walked out of the interview facing a question about his club future as he stated Wales' players were "frustrated and angry" over the manner of the Denmark defeat.
