Gareth Bale is on a one-man mission to lead Wales to a major tournament.

The Real Madrid star may be somewhat unappreciated at club level in Spain, but his countrymen and women love him – and for good reason.

Bale thumped home a stunning late header away to Cyprus in a crucial European Championships qualifier, as the travelling fans roared his name in appreciation.

It was a goal that epitomised Bale’s recent form for his country – powerful, determined and utterly stunning. That’s 6 goals in 7 games in the Euro 2016 qualifiers for the Welsh tyro.

All this on the day that Wales moved ahead of England in the Fifa rankings.
