Bale makes European Championship history with a leading role in Wales’ win over Turkey

The Real Madrid winger had five clear chances as his side clinched a 2-0 win in Group A clash – the first player to make it at Euro

Gareth Bale made European Championship history with his performance for Wales on Wednesday.

The winger was integral to his side’s 2-0 win over Turkey as he recorded two assists in the Euro 2020 clash to make up for the penalty he missed.

Bale first prepared Aaron Ramsey for the opening goal at the end of the first half, then gave Connor Roberts an easy finish in the dying seconds of the game.

What record did Bale set?

Wales could have won by an even greater margin thanks to the threat posed by Bale. The 31-year-old had five clear chances in the Baku game.
