Midfielder Joe Allen has hailed the world-class talents of Aaron Ramsey and Gareth Bale as Wales prepare to go in search of a fourth win in five games against Norway on Saturday.

Captain Ramsey and winger Bale have been an integral part of Wales' rise from 117th place in the FIFA World Rankings to 45th, with the combination of the Arsenal midfielder's incisive passing and the Tottenham wide man's pace and trickery wreaking havoc on opposition defences.

"We have some standout players," said Allen. "I think Aaron and Gareth stick out as players who are world class and they make life a lot easier, they are great to play alongside and that's the sort of level and standard of player I want to play with."
