BALE-OUT: Bale snubbed by UEFA

The Wales ace was a shock omission from the UEFA's elite 18-man squad Champions League squad, unveiled yesterday, despite scoring in the 4-1 final win over Atletico in Lisbon - his sixth strike in the tournament.

And Bale's national boss Chris Coleman reckons the panel including Sir Alex Ferguson, Roy Hodgson and Fernando Hierro got their selection of Diego Costa, Cristiano Ronaldo, Arjen Robben and Zlatan Ibrahimovic all wrong.

Coleman, who is without Bale for the friendly against Holland in Amsterdam with a leg injury, said: "I'm surprised. He's had a really good season.

"He has won arguably the biggest trophy - bar the World Cup - in football. He scored 20-odd goals and had loads of assists.

"I don't know what he has to do for people to say he's had a good season?On the back of last season, he has to be in there, for sure."
