Football: Bale trains after scan on groin strain
CARDIFF, United Kingdom (AFP) - Real Madrid new-boy Gareth Bale took part in a training session with his Wales team-mates on Monday after going for a scan on a groin strain.
Bale joined Spanish giants Real from Tottenham Hotspur last week in a deal widely reported to be the world's most expensive transfer at around 100 million euros (S$168 million).
But Bale was an unused substitute for his country's 2-1 loss to Macedonia in Skopje on Friday and Wales manager Chris Coleman revealed on Monday that the winger was left on the sidelines because of a groin injury suffered in training.
However, Bale's groin problem doesn't appear that serious as, after the scan, he trained with Wales ahead of their World Cup qualifier against Serbia in Cardiff.
