Wales, along with Gareth Bale, beat Ukraine (1:0) and for the first time in 64 years got to the World Cup. Everything was decided by Andriy Yarmolenko’s own goal – right after Gareth’s free-kick. 

Bale is the best player in the history of the national team

Bale’s greatness for Wales is easily explained by both individual statistics and team success. 

  • The match against Ukraine was Bale’s 103rd national team jersey. Only Charlton’s Chris Gunter scored more with 108. It’s likely that Gareth will be able to go to the first line, given that the 32-year-old defender often sits on the bench.
  • Bale made his first team debut in May 2006. During this time, Bale shot as many as 38 goals – none of the Welsh have more. The second is the legendary Ian Rush – only 28 goals.
  • And Bale really pulls the team – what is only worth his recent double of Austria in the semi-finals of the joints. Gareth was the main star at Euro 2016 when the team reached the semi-finals of the tournament. 

And now the long-awaited World Cup, the second in history (the first was in 1958). World legends played for Wales – the same Ian Rush, Neville Southall, Ryan Giggs – but none of them managed to drag the team to a major tournament. 

For the sake of Wales, Bale refused the British, suffered with Ukraine due to back problems

  • Bale has repeatedly confessed his love for Wales – for him, Gareth even refused to play for England. “When I had to choose which team to play for, I was very young. 

I told the agent that I would never accept an offer from the British. I was born in Wales and love it. Everyone knows how much fun it is for me to play for the national team. My grandmother is from England, but I am Welsh, period. I never seriously considered other options, ”Bale said back in 2015 for the Mirror.

  • Bale’s acquaintances say that it’s easier for Gareth to leave for the national team than for the club – there he sees himself in a circle of friends.

“He never acts arrogant,” one of Bale’s friends told ESPN. “Gareth has become one of the biggest stars in football, but he’s still a big kid who can pull some pranks. This is a person who treats everyone like a friend – even team members. That’s why Bale enjoys playing for Wales so much – he just feels like he’s back among his friends and he really enjoys it.”

  • Bale is especially loved by young Welsh players, for whom Gareth is not only a partner, but also a living legend.

Huddersfield winger Sorba Thomas, who made his international debut in October 2021, said: “I was delighted with his responsiveness. At team lunches, he sat down with newcomers who had not yet adapted within the team. “Are you okay? How can I help?”, and led a lively conversation.

  • Gareth is often criticized at club level (even called a parasite) and Wales manager Rob Page is always supportive and protective.

“I know Gareth well and a lot of people don’t see him off the pitch, having recently donated to the National Health Service and a hospital in Cardiff. And those were significant amounts. Gareth is not praised for this because he doesn’t shout about his business.

When they called him a parasite, my blood boiled. I do not like it. This is not about Gareth Bale, the captain of our country,” Page said in an April interview with The Athletic.
