Gareth Bale is a different player in comparison to the one from last season. The Tottenham player has reconciled with football, and the numbers say so: the Welshman participated in a goal for his country again.
Wales and Tottenham have recovered the best Bale. He has taken a step forward and has once again been the leader that dazzled everyone at Real Madrid. He is another player, as he demonstrated against Ireland.
Wales had to win against Ireland to stay top of their Nations League group. And the winning goal came thanks to Bale, who gave a magnificent assist for Brooks in the 67th minute.

Brooks headed excellently and that cross from Bale became a new assist for his personal numbers. The numbers speak for themselves, his change is spectacular.
Furthermore, at an international level, Bale continues to make a name for himself: with 9 goals and 4 assists, the Welshman has participated in 13 goals for Wales in the last 13 home matches.
