Compilation Of Gareth Bale's Masterclass vs. Turkey Shows He's Still One Of The World's Best

Gareth Bale is STILL one of the world's very best and he showed that for Wales against Turkey, dropping a masterclass in their crucial European Championship clash.

Bale starred as Wales beat Turkey 2-0 on Wednesday to go a long way towards booking their place in the next round of the tournament.

The 31-year-old performed heroically in Azerbaijan as he set up a goal in sensational style in each half.

The Real Madrid man then missed a penalty, blazing over the bar from the spot. Though he redeemed himself moments before the final whistle.


He brilliantly created an opening out of nothing, teeing up Connor Roberts in stoppage time.

A spectacular performance by Bale who proved he's the ultimate big-match player and still at the top of his game despite his patchy club form.

His outing at Euro 2020 sent social media wild.


Wales boss Robert Page hailed his captain's performance following the huge result.

"Without his two assists we don't win that game, it's as simple as that," he said of Bale.

"He showed an enormous amount of courage to react in a positive way from the penalty miss, and that speaks a lot about him as a man.


"I think it's unfair to put that pressure of: 'Oh, he hasn't scored.' Only he could have come in on his left foot and played that ball to Aaron [for the opening goal].

"And it is only him at the end that would have thought and had the pace and power to get past the defender from a short corner and do what he did for Connor to finish. It's not just about scoring goals, it's about being a team player and setting goals up. He's certainly done that."

Wales resume their campaign on Sunday when they face Group A leaders Italy.
