Wales coach Chris Coleman hailed Tottenham star Gareth Bale after his goalscoring performance in victory over Austria.

Coleman acknowledged in Bale he is working with one of the game's finest talents.

He said: "There are not many players that can do what he does.

"The cross for the second goal was great, he is such a threat and we know when we have him in the team we can afford to go without the ball for periods because he is such a danger when we get it to him.

"He changes the feel of a game and he is a big plus for us when he is playing on that form. He did two things tonight that not many players can do."
