‘If you need anything, let me know’ – Gareth Bale’s classy welcome to Wales new boys Luke Harris and Jordan James with teenagers to potentially feature against Belgium and Poland

    Gareth Bale gave a classy welcome to Wales new boys Luke Harris and Jordan James ahead of their upcoming Nations League clashes against Belgium and Poland.

    Fulham starlet Harris, 17, received his first call-up to Wales’ senior side having played for their Under-17 and Under-19s.

    Meanwhile, Birmingham midfielder James, 18, who’s played for England at youth level, was a late inclusion after Joe Allen pulled out due to an injury.

    Naturally the pair will be feeling rather nervous amongst senior players.

    Some of them were part of Wales’ magical run to the semi-finals of Euro 2016, where they defeated Belgium, who they face next.

    The biggest superstar is obviously Bale, who’s viewed as Wales’ greatest ever player and has also won a bucket load of trophies during his nine-year stay at Real Madrid.

    But it appears there’s no ego with his superstar status with Bale, who now plies his trade at MLS club LAFC.

    He was filmed reaching out to the new boys and said to Harris and James: “Nice to meet you, if you need anything let me know.”

    He was also filmed shaking hands with members of Rob Page’s coaching staff, the manager himself as well as the chef in the Wales camp.

    The 33-year-old also had friendly embraces with Chris Gunter and Wayne Hennessey and had a bit of banter with Sorba Thomas about their respective haircuts.

    Bale and co take on Belgium at the King Baudouin Stadium in Brussels on Thursday before facing Poland at the Cardiff City Stadium on Sunday.

    Wales are currently bottom of their Nations League group with one point, three points behind third-placed Poland and thus risk getting relegated to League B.

    Meanwhile, the games will provide the nation with their final warm-up ahead of the 2022 World Cup.
