Gareth Bale Score an amazing solo goal to help his new team MLS LA team crushes Real Salt Lake on Sunday.
Bale got off to a great start at LAFC since joining the club on a one-year contract after leaving Real Madrid at the end of last season.
He scored his second goal for his new team at the weekend when they beat Real Salt Lake 4-1.
A Cristian Arango brace and a goal by Clen Acosta helped LAFC dominate the game before Bale finished off the scoring with a superb individual effort.
Receiving the ball on the right side of midfield, Bale slipped past two defenders before cutting inside and firing an unstoppable finish past Salt Lake goalkeeper Zach McMath.
Crowds were stunned by the impressive speed and power of the 33-year-old Wales captain.
One fan wrote on Twitter: “Officially the star player in his club and league again – apparently love life too! Incredible ending.”
Another added, “He’s been doing this all his career, and he can’t be played in games like this. Sit back and enjoy seeing a player with world-class talent.”
A third wrote: “For Gareth Bale, today’s match was like playing against children.”
Speaking earlier this week, Bale said he is now enjoying football again after a difficult end to his career at Real Madrid.
“Any player will tell you if he has a smile on his face, enjoys football more, you play better, a little more excited, life looks a little better,” he said.
