Liverpool midfielder Joe Allen is full of praise for Tottenham star Gareth Bale.

Wales will again look to Allen and Bale for inspiration against Croatia.

And Allen said: "Gareth has so many good attributes. He can have the ball on the touchline and three men around him, but he finds a way of getting past them.

"He creates chances and scores goals.

"Obviously, he's a key player for us and we hope his form continues."
