WHAT do you get the man who has everything?

Gareth Bale insists there’s only one gift he wants from his Wales teammates to celebrate winning his 100th cap against Belarus tonight – three points.

Bale is set to join Chris Gunter and women’s stars Jess Fishlock, Loren Dykes and Sophie Ingle in the 100 club for Wales this evening.

But he’s adamant that securing a vital victory over Belarus in the pursuit of World Cup qualification is far more important than his personal milestone.

“To get 100 caps personally would be an incredible achievement,” said the Real Madrid star.

“It's nice for me and my family, but the most important thing is the game and not the occasion.”

Asked what gift he would want from his teammates, Bale said: “I want them to give me three points. That would be the perfect gift. Winning the game would be the perfect present.

“As soon as the whistle goes, I won't be thinking of anything other than the three points, but hopefully I will enjoy it after the game following a positive result.”

Reflecting on his 15 years representing Wales, Bale spoke about his transition from fan to talisman.

“I still feel like a little kid when I'm watching Wales and not playing,” added the captain. “It's my country, it's a special connection, and when you start playing for the national team you bring that connection with you.

“We're all the same, we love playing for Wales. It's been an incredible journey, it started when I was very young and it's still not over now.

“Coming away with Wales is a highlight of the year. It's not just about certain moments, but it's about growing Welsh football and we've all bought into this philosophy to push Welsh football forward.

"There's been so many highlights, but hopefully there's more to come as well.”

Wales have already secured a place in the play-offs for the Qatar 2022 World Cup thanks to their success in the Nations League but they still have a slim chance of qualifying automatically.

To do that, Bale and co must beat Belarus and group leaders Belgium on Tuesday and hope that the Belgians also lose at home to Estonia tonight.

That unlikely scenario would seal top spot and a place at the World Cup for the first time since 1958 but a more realistic aim is to secure second spot in the group and a possible home match in the play-offs.

“It takes the pressure off a little bit and it's great for the supporters to know that we have a play-off in March," said Wales caretaker manager Rob Page.

"But we want to build momentum. We can only control what we do, and our full focus is on these next two games and getting as much as we can out of them.

"We've got a tough game on Saturday night against Belarus as they've changed the way their play and they're a lot more attack minded.

“It's great to have two home games with a great crowd. We want to give the supporters a great performance, and then the result should take care of itself.

“We want to finish second for a favourable play-off tie, so we want to win both games, or at least get the four points we need."
