In the meantime, Bale was allowed to get some of his mojo back with an awesome performance for Wales in their Euro 2016 qualifying, in Israel. It was possible since earlier, Madrid Coach Carlo Ancelotti had accepted that international break. The former Tottenham player started as the team’s most dangerous striker, very intense with his build up play and came close to scoring while nipping but Olazabal and Mainz.
Sadly, he shot too high from outside the area. The Soccer Gods were in his favor as Gale opened the score on the 25 minute mark. A perfectly weighted ball was guided by Toni Kroos, behind the Granada defense while the €100 million man completely overpowered Mainz. He took the ball around Olazabal and kept his cool while finishing from a tight angle.
Right now, Cristiano Ronaldo has a great chance to break Lionel Messi’s 50 goal record but retaining the La-Liga title is more important, according to Terry Gibson Sky Sports’ Spanish Football Expert. Right now, Ronaldo is 14 goals shorter than the record established by the Barcelona superstar in La Liga 2011-12.
Stay tuned for more updates on Cristiano Ronaldo!
