The Real Madrid winger, who is set to win his 43rd cap in Saturday's friendly against Finland at the Cardiff City Stadium, expects results to improve over the next few years with the likes of himself, Aaron Ramsey, Joe Allen and Ashley Williams in the team.

"We're heading in the right direction, we have a good group of young players, we are starting to see some results and we have got a bright future," said Bale.

"Hopefully we can get a lot of support behind us, have everybody and the media believe in us and hopefully we can achieve something we have not achieved for a long time."

Crowds have dwindled for Wales games recently but Bale feels his profile as the world's most expensive player will help them return to playing in front of a packed out Millennium Stadium.

He added: "Hopefully it (his profile) can help Wales in the long run, for me personally we really want to kick on as a team, as a whole, as a country and we want to get back to the days when we were filling up the Millennium Stadium with 75,000 fans and almost qualifying for tournaments.

"We want to qualify now, we have got the team to do it and we know if the whole nation gets behind us and starts believing in us and putting positive things in our heads, we have the right team to make this happen."

Watch Wales take on Finland live on Sky Sports 2 HD from 5.45pm on Saturday.

s a Liverpool fan, I personally hate Palace. My pick would probably be Arsenal, which is funny because it seems the vast majority of their own fans don't even like them right now.

ave been trying to work out at what point this changed. Bess guess is that Romario was the last player to get away with partying and still perform at a high level.
