Wales face Belgium in a testing Euro 2016 qualifier on Sunday, but Real Madrid star Gareth Bale was among those in relaxed mood at training.

Sitting top of their Euro 2016 qualifying group and daring to dream of a place at a first major finals in 38 years, you could forgive the Wales camp for allowing a few nerves to creep in.

There was no indication in training on Saturday, though, that those charged with the task of booking a ticket to France are feeling the pressure.

Chris Coleman has pieced together a tight-knit group that are thriving under the added expectation being placed on their shoulders.

That is why, ahead of a testing trip to Brussels to face star-studded Belgium, a young squad – led by Real Madrid ‘Galactico’ Gareth Bale - are all smiles as they seek to stretch a three-match unbeaten start and cement their standing at the Group B summit.

Facing the likes of Eden Hazard, Thibaut Courtois, Adnan Januzaj and Romelu Lukaku will not be easy by any means, but it is better to be entering the contest with no fear and focusing on your own strengths than worrying about what the opposition will be bringing to the table.
