After the cheers over the double pack at the penultimate step on the way to the longed-in World Cup participation, Gareth Bale honored religiously with his critics.
Because he still acts as part-time workers for Real Madrid at stately salary, the “Marca” before 2: 1 against Austria in the playoff to the football World Cup in Qatar described as “Welsh Parasites”.
“It’s disgusting, you should be ashamed of yourself,” said the 32-year-old quiet, but determined. “I’m not excited, finish.”
His gorgeous free-kick gate in the angle (25th minute) to the guided tour celebrated Bale skipped on the stomach. After the rotary shot to the 2: 0 (51.) he knocked himself demonstratively on the coat of arms with the red dragon on his chest.
Whether he wanted to send a message with the cheers? “No, I do not need to send a message,” he answered with a smile.
For the royal of Real, the star door completed only five mandatory games this season. His country leads Bale reliably as a captain. In 2016, the semi-final in the EM-final-round premiere of the largest success so far succeeded, now the second World Cup participation is followed after 1958.
The opponent in the playoff finale will be determined in June in the duel between Ukraine and Scotland.
