Kevin Bond on Talksport just now has revealed to Alan Brazil Breakfast Show that Gareth Bale hasn’t travelled to Italy.
Jonathan Woodgate has – and he is is one of a yet unnamed group of ‘one or two others’ that Bondy said had made the trip but would be watched and a decision made at the eleventh hour.
Bond said that Bale’s back was not responding. They had tried a few different things, thought all was well but then once he trained it flared up again.
Dawson and Bassong are on board and Bondy added that Billy Bob Gallas has traveled ‘with an ankle’ which just goes to prove you really never know where you are with the French.
