According to the report on Daily Mail and BBC, Gareth Bale who played for Tottenham last season on loan was responding to questions from journalists before the one that angered him came.

And instead of him to respond in annoying way, the Real Madrid star decided to walk away from the interview.

However, Gareth Bale later responded while speaking with S4C.

"I want to continue to play.
"People ask stupid questions all the time. I love playing for Wales. I will play for Wales until the day I stop playing football.
"We've just started the World Cup campaign. We were just saying in there now, we need to take this experience into the World Cup campaign.''

Earlier, Legit.ng had reported how two goals by Kasper Dolberg and late strikes by Joakim Maehle and Martin Braithwaite against Wales on Saturday, June 26, were all Denmark needed to reach the quarterfinal of the ongoing Euro 2020 championships.

The highly anticipated encounter lived up to its pre-match razzmatazz, but the Danish side looked the better side all through the game and won the tie 4-0.

Gareth Bale looked bright in the early exchanges for Wales navigating into the danger zone of the opponents.

But in the 8th minute, Denmark pressed back at Wales down the right flank after an error from Rodon.

Stryger Larsen sent a low ball into the box, but the Dragons cleared their lines to stymie the attack.

Moments later, Bale dropped his shoulder in a run from the right flank and he cut back to fire at goal on his left foot that went wide of the right post.

In the 27th minute, The Danes however took the lead through a sublime effort from Dolberg to make it 1-0.
