Moldova head coach Igor Dobrovolski believes Gareth Bale is in the top three players in world football.
The Real Madrid star scored twice as Wales defeated Moldova 4-0 in World Cup qualifying in Cardiff on Monday night.
Of the result, Dobrovolski felt that if it weren't for the former Tottenham Hotspur ace pouncing on their errors, Moldova could have made more of a contest in the Group D opener.
"I am very disappointed because if Wales had played so much better I would have been able to understand it," he said.
"But they scored four times because of our mistakes.
"Wales is lucky because Gareth Bale comes from your country and he is one of the best three players in the world.
"But you can not make mistakes on that level, they were childish mistakes.
"I am sure though that we will ruin the mood for some of the other teams."
