Bale relishing German test

Gareth Bale - just like Chris Gunter - feels the pressure is all on Germany as Wales prepare for tonight's World Cup qualifier at Borussia Moenchengladbach.

The Spurs pair are in the Welsh squad and relishing the prospect of meeting the group favourites at the Borussia Park Stadium.

Germany already top Group Four after beating Russia 2-1 on Saturday.

However, Wales are currently second and go into the match with the confidence of picking up a draw in Germany in European Championship qualifying only last November.

"I was injured the last time we got a draw in Germany but the team has taken a lot of confidence from that result," said Gareth.

"We are going there confident and looking for points.

"There is no reason why we can't get a result and there is no pressure on us - we are the underdogs.

"We can go out there and just play our football."
