I doubted that Bale was worth so much. I didn’t think he would cope with the short passing game and foot skill of Spanish football, not to mention the culture and playing second, third, or even fourth fiddle at one of the biggest clubs in the world, but he has been very good since he settled in.
That goal seen in the video below is something else (he looks almost like a 400m track specialist scoring that) and against Barca as well! I was kinda waiting for Bale to show his athletic ability in Spanish football and it couldn’t have happened on a bigger stage..well almost. I hope he continues to impress.
One of the best solo goals I have seen.
