CARDIFF, Wales (AP) - Real Madrid forward Gareth Bale has been named in the Wales squad for the decisive European Championship qualifiers against Bosnia-Herzegovina and Andorra.

Bale has missed Real Madrid’s last three games with a left calf injury but he is set to return against Atletico Madrid on Sunday.

Wales coach Chris Coleman will be hoping Bale comes through the Madrid derby unscathed as the country requires only one point from its final two Euro 2016 qualifiers to end a 58-year wait to play at a major tournament.

Wales is at Bosnia-Herzegovina on Oct. 10 and hosts Andorra in Cardiff three days later.
