Bale is a Welsh legend. Bale made his first team debut at Southampton in 2006 and transferred to Tottenham Hotspur the following year. He made his name known all over the world by scoring a legendary hat-trick against Inter Milan in the 2010 UEFA Champions League (UCL), and succeeded in transferring to Real Madrid in 2013.
The myth persisted. Having built the ‘BBC (Bale-Karim Benzema-Cristiano Ronaldo) line’ at Real, he led Real’s 10th UCL title right away in the transfer season. Even after that, he was consistently mentioned as one of the best players in the world, contributing to the team’s championship, including the legendary UCL 3 consecutive victories.
It was also a legend in Wales. Bale made waves at Euro 2016 by leading his country to the semi-finals in his first Euro with his amazing performance, including scoring a goal in all group stage matches. He also played the role of Wales’ ace in 2022 by putting Wales in the World Cup for the first time in 64 years.
Bale holds the record for both the most appearances and the most goals scored in Wales’ history. He played 111 A matches and scored 41 goals. The other three players are also Welsh legends. Gunter made 109 appearances, second all-time, with Allen scoring two goals in 72 games and Williams scoring two goals in 33 games.
