Gareth Bale shut down questions on whether the World Cup match against England would be his last for Wales on Tuesday, issuing a flat "no" when asked the question outright.

The Welsh captain is his country's most capped men's international player, though speculation has been surrounding the 33-year-old's future at both club and international level for a number of months.

Bale moved to LAFC in MLS in order to prepare for the World Cup after leaving Real Madrid, and while he scored an equaliser against the United States in game one of Wales' tournament in Qatar the team have underperformed on the whole, losing 2-0 to Iran last time out.
