Gareth Bale anomaly in the Wales national team with Real Madrid Gareth Bale ‘s moncer performance with the Wales national team was inversely proportional to when he was in Real Madrid ‘s uniform . Since returning from a loan spell with Tottenham Hotspur, Bale has struggled to break into the starting XI .
So far, he has only made five appearances in all competitions. Of the five games, Gareth Bale never appeared for the full 90 minutes.
In fact, Bale did not play at all when Real Madrid were crushed by Barcelona with a score of 0-4 in the 29th week of La Liga match, 21 March. In fact, Madrid need Gareth Bale’s energy, because they can’t play Karim Benzema due to injury.
On the other hand, Bale is always available when the Wales national team needs his services. He performed well in the match against Austria. Bale scored and celebrated with emotion. He patted and kissed the Wales national team logo.
Real Madrid should be ashamed Gareth Bale’s action kissing the Wales national team logo is considered a form of satire to Real Madrid. So, what did Bale say?
“I don’t have to say anything, it’s a waste of my time. It’s disgusting. They should be ashamed of themselves. I don’t want to make a fuss, that’s enough.”
“I can take a free-kick if I can play. Glad to see it became a goal. The first goal gave us the momentum to win and the second goal was also good,” he continued.
Minor injury Gareth Bale was replaced by Robert Page in the 90+3 minute. He was forced to end the match early, due to a minor injury to his leg.
If he manages to bring the Wales national team through to the 2022 World Cup finals, Gareth Bale will make history. Because Wales have not competed in the World Cup since 1958.
