In the match that saw Chris Gunter become their most-capped player, Wales' 6-0 tonking of China in the opening match of the 2018 China Cup also saw Gareth Bale set a new global record of his very own. On a personal note it's obviously great to break the record and on my daughter Nava's birthday too, but I couldn't have done it without my team-mates over the years.

Bale also holds another record on an global level as he is the youngest Welsh player to score a goal with the national team when he scored a goal against Slovakia at Euro 2008's qualification match with a free kick.

"But we won the game and it's a great start for Ryan, Gareth Bale breaks the record, Harry Wilson scores his first goal for Wales - they're all the positives from all that".

Trump Pushes Europe on Iran Deal, But May Kill Deal Either Way
Some analysts reject this stance, arguing the expression of this expectation did not imply a commitment on Iran's part. First, Trump wants to penalize Iran for ballistic missiles, which were not part of the original deal.

In a tournament where the Football Association of Wales would have lost £100,000 of their reported £1 million participation fee had Gareth Bale not featured, Giggs was quick to avoid that fate for his national team by naming the Real Madrid winger in his first starting lineup.

"It's a fantastic moment for Gareth and he fully deserves it".

Although Bale has suffered another injury-hit season at the Santiago Bernabeu, he has scored 12 goals and provided seven assists in all competitions.

At this time , the Venezuelan economy faces hyperinflation, along with the potential collapse of its currency. The U.S. official, however, said the Maduro government had refused direct assistance.

Bale's first goal was a vintage effort of his, dribbling past two players and, despite being off balance, found the top corner with a curling shot. The Burnley striker played in Bale, who needed no invitation to double his and his team's tally. It is a massive honour. Wu caused Wales problems whenever he moved near the penalty area and he was able to impress with the little possession that came his way. "We just tried to enjoy ourselves and when we enjoy ourselves we play our best".

Bale made his debut for Wales in May 2006, coming off the bench in a friendly against Trinidad and Tobago to become the youngest-ever Wales global, at 16 years and 315 days. The possibility of Bale going up against Luis Suárez and Edinson Cavani is enticing.
