Gareth Bale says he is ready for Wales' Euro 2016 qualifiers against Bosnia-Herzegovina and Andorra after recovering from injury.

Real Madrid's Bale hurt his calf on 15 September, but came on as a substitute in the 1-1 draw at Atletico Madrid.

The 26-year-old was named Welsh player of the year for a record fifth time on Monday.

"I have prepared well for the last couple of weeks with my rehab. We are all on board, ready to go," he said.

"The calf is okay. It was a nice 20 minutes to open it up and get the legs going ready for the next two games."

Wales face Bosnia away in Zenica on Saturday, 10 October and host Andorra at Cardiff City Stadium the following Tuesday.

Chris Coleman's team are unbeaten at the top of Group B and need one point to qualify for next summer's European Championship finals in France.

Bale has scored six of Wales' nine goals in qualifying to spearhead their bid to reach the finals of a major tournament for the first time since the 1958 World Cup.

"We have been working hard for many years to be in this position," Bale added.

"We have all been playing with each other for six to eight years. The manager has come in and been amazing."
