Wales odds drift to reach World Cup after Bale injury blow
Real star ruled out with calf strain
Wales's chances of qualifying for the 2018 World Cup in Russia are on the slide after Gareth Bale was ruled out of the final two qualifying games with a calf strain.
Barnsley striker Tom Bradshaw has been called up the squad in his place, but Wales haven't won a game without their talisman since 2013.
Wales are second in Group D, but they are likely to need at least four points from games against Georgia on Friday and Ireland on Monday to secure a playoff spot and Hills have pushed them out to 2-1 to qualify for the finals. Ireland are 5-1 to reach Russia.
