Bale: Wales want to win every game

Real Madrid forward Gareth Bale says Wales will be aiming to finish top of their group and progress as far as possible at Euro 2016 in France.

Wales will square off against England, Russian and Slovakia in Group B, arguably one of the tournament's toughest groups, for a place in the knockout phase.

This will be their first-ever appearance in the European Championship finals, while they have only featured in one other major tournament; the 1958 World Cup in Sweden.

Despite having no pedigree in European competition, Bale is backing the Dragons to prove their doubters wrong.

"We're not going there just to make up the numbers," Bale told BBC Wales. "We want to win every game that we play, we want to win the group and give ourselves the best chance.

"No matter who we play we feel confident in our abilities we can win. We'll go out there and try and do that."

Wales will face Sweden in their final pre-tournament friendly on Sunday, before taking on Slovakia in their Group B opener at Stade Matmut-Atlantique in Bordeaux on 11 June.
