Burnley transfer news: ‘£20m’ Burnley player claim amid exit speculation, Tottenham in double striker ‘talks’
Wales talisman Gareth Bale has hailed Wayne Hennessey as the Burnley goalkeeper prepares to win his 100th cap for his country.
The summer signing, a free transfer from Crystal Palace, will rack up a century of appearances for Wales against the Czech Republic at the Cardiff City Stadium on Tuesday night, joining Bale and Chris Gunter in achieving the feat.
Hennessey, 35, started the 2-1 win over Austria in Cardiff on Thursday night, alongside Burnley teammate Connor Roberts, as Bale scored both goals to take Wales into a World Cup play-off final against Scotland or Ukraine.
And he will look to add to his national record 40 clean sheets against the Czechs.
Bale said: “What an achievement to get to 100 caps.
“The one thing with Wayne is he probably goes without much recognition.
“But I guess as a keeper if people are not talking about you normally that’s a great thing because you haven’t made mistakes.
“I also think people forget he’s got the all-time clean sheet record as well. What a goalkeeper. I think he’s so underestimated, so underrated.
“He has really been a rock in this team.
“He’s been a massive part of our success from the start till now and I can’t wait to celebrate his 100th cap with him.”
