Ever since he announced himself on the global stage by tearing Maicon to shreds in the UEFA Champions League at the San Siro in 2010, Gareth Bale has gone from strength to strength for both club and country. Becoming the most expensive player in the history of football after his switch from Tottenham Hotspur to Real Madrid in 2013, this explosive winger propelled Los Blancos to the 2014 UEFA Champions League final and ended the Spanish giants’ long wait for La Decima with the first of Real Madrid's three extra time goals. Two years later he added to that first continental conquest with a second UEFA Champions League medal with victory in the stadium that made him world famous: San Siro. Now, after leading his nation through a UEFA EURO 2016 campaign that defied belief and history, Bale sets his sights on yet more glory with Real Madrid and Wales.
