Last updated : 07 October 2014 By Footy Mad - Editor

The Newcastle left-back is enjoying first team football on Tyneside at the moment, and he has been called up for the Wales squad who have two qualifying ties starting with Bosnia-Hercegovina on Friday, and then Cyprus on Monday.

Dummett qualifies for Wales through his Grandmother and has one cap so far, which he received in June after coming on in the 83rd minute in a friendly against Netherlands.

Dummett ready for the Welsh challenge?

Bale, the Real Madrid superstar, became the first player to be named Welsh footballer of the year for a fourth time at a Cardiff ceremony on Monday night.

But it is a place at the Euro 2016 finals in France that Bale really craves.

Wales have not qualified for a major tournament since the 1958 World Cup in Sweden.

Wales in a major finals? Yeah right - keep dreaming!

Gareth Bale: "We have massive potential and I want to make history with Wales and qualify for a major tournament.

"I feel football can overtake rugby soon. I remember when I was younger the Millennium Stadium was full every time I went to watch.

"Rugby has obviously overtaken it in recent years but I feel football is on the incline and we can get a lot of fans to the games and get the support behind us.
"It's not only important for us as a team to get to a major championship, but as a nation as a whole.

"We want to inspire more kids to play football and become a better national team.

"We've been together for quite a long time now, we get along really well and it's really a tight-knit group.

"We're growing as players and as long as everyone stays committed and working hard we can go on to achieve our goals.

"We've got off to a positive start in the group with three points and we feel we've got the momentum behind us.

"We want to carry that into the next game and get a positive result."
