China 0-6 Wales: Gareth Bale Breaks Scoring Record in Friendly

Tottenham Hotspur's Welsh defender Gareth Bale vies with Real Madrid's Portuguese defender Ricardo Alberto Carvalho during the Champions League quarter-final first leg football

Bale, who took his global tally to 29 goals and ahead of former striker Ian Rush, struck in the second minute of the China Cup opener against the hosts in Nanning and added a second on 21 minutes.

Latching onto a pass from Bale, the youngster cut inside onto his deadly left foot and sent the ball sailing into the far corner.

In midfield, Giggs has trusted Andy King and Joe Allen to do the hard yards as he attempts to get off to a good start in his first game as a permanent manager. His opener even had the home supporters cheering and his second was gift-wrapped.

Six goals up, Giggs rang in the changes and Gareth Bale was taken off to a standing ovation.

The Burnley striker duly got in on the act, diverting Andy King's knockdown into the bottom corner following a wonderful raking pass from Bale, who nearly had a hat-trick when Yan beat a sweetly struck 20-yarder to safety.

Bale fired Wales ahead at the Guanxi Sports Center within two minutes and had added his second before the first quarter was up.

Paul Ryan claims he's 'received assurances' that President Trump won't fire Mueller
The president challenged the investigation's existence and suggested political bias on the part of Mr Mueller's investigators. Mr Trump was referring to a dossier of unfavourable research funded by the Democratic Party and Hillary Clinton's campaign.

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 worldwide, at 16 years and 315 days. His ecstatic celebration at breaking Rush's record said everything about what the moment meant to him.

His bow for Wales five years ago looks a little unusual now, Wilson was still in the Liverpool youth ranks, but he has more than deserved his second shot in the first-team.

"It is a massive honour and achievement for me", Bale told BBC Sport Wales. We played on the front foot and we were at it from the start.

Although Real have a Champions League quarter-final against Juventus on 3 April, manager Zinedine Zidane has not given Giggs any specific instructions about how much Bale is allowed to play during Wales' two friendly fixtures in China.

"We want to get that strength in depth", Giggs said.
