WALES MANAGER CHRIS Coleman praised Gareth Bale’s predatory instincts after he inspired his side to a 3-1 win over Iceland last night.

Bale had a hand in all three of Wales’ goals at the Cardiff City Stadium as James Collins and Sam Vokes netted either side of Ashley Williams diverting the ball into his own net.

The Real Madrid star got his name on the scoresheet 20 minutes from time, much to the delight of Coleman.

“Some of the things he does are absolutely fantastic, it really is,” Coleman told Sky Sports. “Once we’re in a game, if it’s 1-0 to us, 1-1 or even 1-0 down, with him on the pitch, we just know we’ve got a chance to score and the opposition know that.

“That’s a great confidence booster for us.”
