  • Real Madrid Bale a headache for every coach he's had

The report claims that Madrid chiefs are "bothered" by Bale's eagerness to play for Wales in their friendly against Spain on Thursday evening, despite his own injury concerns.

Spain under Luis Enrique, who took over the national team following La Roja's round-of-16 shootout defeat to Russian Federation at the World Cup, has looked impressive with a 2-1 win away to England and a 6-0 rout of Croatia in the UEFA Nations League.

Spain captain Sergio Ramos doubled the lead with a header from Suso's free kick in the 19th and striker Alcacer volleyed his second after a defensive mix-up before the half-hour mark.

Gareth Bale is likely to miss Wales' next UEFA Nations League match against the Republic of Ireland on Tuesday, according to manager Ryan Giggs. We shall see what type of national team Wales is without him.

The visitors' second goal came from a free-kick from the former Liverpool forward that reached Ramos who headed into the bottom corner.

Suso nearly added a fourth after the break but his 25-yard curler clipped the crossbar, before Morata headed wide a left-wing cross from Jose Gaya.

The ex-Barcelona coach orchestrated a fine performance which included goals from the in-form Paco Alcacer and Marc Barta as well as a positive display from Alvaro Morata and a heroic clearance from debutant Jonny to prevent a certain Wales goal.

"I want my players to compete at the highest level, regardless of whether this is a friendly or not", Luis Enrique said.

"It is very unlikely at this point", Giggs told Sky Sports about Bale's availability after the Spain defeat.

A run of seven goals in four appearances for Dortmund, including a hat-trick off the bench in his last game, earned Alcacer another chance in the worldwide fold and the striker grasped his opportunity with a well-taken brace in the first half, outshining Morata in attack.

- Spain are unbeaten in their last 27 matches in all competitions (W18 D9), scoring 80 goals in this run.
