Wales went down 2-0 to Bosnia last night in Euro 2016 qualifying, but qualified for the finals as Israel slipped to a surprise loss at home to Cyprus.
Bale called it the “best loss of my life” and said that Wales qualifying for Euro 2016 was on par with Real Madrid winning the Champions League in 2014.
This is right up there to be honest (referring to the CL final). Everyone knows how important Wales is to me and how proud we are to all play for our country. It ranks on a par with everything else, if not top.
It is hard to put into words what we have achieved. I have never celebrated a loss like that. But it is not about one game, we did a lot of the hard work beforehand. It is something we have been working for since we started and, fair credit to all the staff and all the fans, it is a moment to enjoy.
The dressing room has been a lot of fun and it is something we have been working hard for. Now we have done it, we have crossed the line and will enjoy the occasion. It won’t take time to sink in
