Gareth Bale has only started two games for LAFC since moving to ‘The City of Angels in June. He hasn’t played 90 minutes for his club in nearly two years, and that was in the FIFA Cup against Wycombe Wanderers. He is 33 years old and has recently recovered from an injury. He revealed that he “prayed and prayed” to make Wales’ FIFA World Cup Qatar 2022 TM team. And he wasn’t going to leave the Ahmad Bin Ali Stadium grass come hell or high water. After all, this was the Dragons’ first World Cup match in 64 years. Bale is Mr. Wales. He understands what he means to his teammates, supporters, and the whole nation.
It’s a good thing for them all that Bale refused to consider taking a break. With 10 minutes remaining, long after Bale should have been rehydrating on the bench, he utilized everything he had to go to the ball ahead of his man and win a penalty. He then stepped up and sent Matt Turner the wrong way to earn Wales an important point under extreme duress. There is no way – none at all.” Kieffer Moore was questioned by FIFA+ if he had any doubts about Bale going up to take a penalty he won.
He personifies Wales.” Gaz is a fantastic player. He’s fantastic both on and off the field. We adore him. He’s done it at the greatest level for a long, long time, and you have to appreciate that he has the composure, confidence, and belief to put it where he’s put it,” USA defender Tim Ream said of Bale on FIFA+. “At first, I felt Matt had a finger in it, but at the end of the day, you have to give credit where credit is due, and it’s a beautiful penalty that gets his side a point.

The Dragons reached the quarter-finals in their only prior World Cup attempt, but only after the legendary John Charles was wounded. Wales played excellently in the absence of their hero but were defeated 1-0 by a piece of Pele genius. With John Charles in the side, we may have won,” manager Jimmy Murphy lamented, and Pele subsequently agreed. “Without him, I don’t think we would have won,” ‘The King’ revealed. He was one of the top players in the world, and we were all familiar with him.
Wales suffered a major blow not just because they lost a fantastic player, but also mentally. Bale is no stranger to major hits. Nonetheless, it would take an axe to prevent him from playing for Wales against IR Iran on Friday. He understands the significance of his presence. Psychologically, it will undeniably benefit his friends while hurting his enemies. And we’ve all seen what happens when Bale refuses to work another overtime shift.
