Gareth Bale is fit for Wales' World Cup qualifier against Croatia on Tuesday night.

The Tottenham winger was withdrawn at half-time during Friday's Group C game against Scotland after struggling to beat a virus all week.

Wales coach Chris Coleman has told Spurs he will take no chances with Bale, but the 23-year-old trained with the rest of the squad on Sunday and Monday and should start the game.

Coleman told Sky Sports News: "He's trained well so I think he's in a lot better nick than he was going into the Scotland game. I think he should be okay."
