Tottenham's Bale ahead of schedule with calf injury
Gareth Bale says he is recovering well from the calf injury that kept him out of the Great Britain Olympics team.
The Tottenham winger scored in his side's pre-season friendly with LA Galaxy which ended 1-1 on Tuesday and says his rehab has been going well and he will soon be at full fitness.
"After about 65 minutes my calf started to cramp up a bit but it was a good workout. It was one that I needed and it was good to get a goal as well," he told the club's official website.
"My rehab's gone very well at the club - we are well ahead of schedule.
"I am glad to be back. It's important to get a pre-season under my belt for the season forthcoming so I am just delighted to be back now without any problems."
