Gareth Bale leaves Spanish critics red-faced with two wondergoals for Wales




Gareth Bale was at his sublime best for Wales against Austria to leave Spanish critics red-faced. The former Tottenham star was criticised heavily by members of the media in Spain ahead of Wales’ World Cup play-off match against Austria on Thursday.

Bale has barely featured for Real Madrid of late. He has made just four La Liga appearances all season and just once since last August.

The 32-year-old was brutally torn apart by Spanish newspaper Marca this week. Bale was called a ‘parasite’ who had been ‘sucking euros’ out of Real during his time at the club.

Bale will leave Real when his contract expires at the end of the campaign. But he has proven yet again that he still has a unique quality and silenced his critics in the process.

Wales are attempting to qualify for a World Cup for the first time since 1958. Austria stood in their way ahead of a clash against either Scotland or Ukraine for a place at Qatar 2022.

And after a nervy start for his team, Bale came up with the goods. The winger opened the scoring in the 25th minute with an inch-perfect free kick from fully 25 yards out.

Christoph Baumgartner fouled Harry Wilson and the Fulham star wanted to take the set-piece himself. But Bale took control and proved he was right to do so, with Austria goalkeeper Heinz Lindner helpless to stop the ball going in off the bar.

Just six minutes after half-time, Bale had scored his second. The strike was equally impressive, firing across goal with his lethal left foot after a well-worked corner from the hosts.

Former Wales defender Sam Ricketts says there are not many other players who could have scored the free kick that Bale did. Ricketts told BBC Radio 5 Live: “There was no dummy run, 30,000 people knew he was going to take that free-kick.

“There could be 10 players in the wall and no matter how many goalkeepers, nobody is saving that. Even if he’s 60 per cent or 70 per cent fit he’s got that level of ability. How many other players in the world could score that goal?”

After his second goal, Wales international Sam Vokes said Bale had proved his critics wrong. Vokes said: “What a finish.

“Another great finish from Gareth Bale. Questions were asked during the week but he’s turned up again.”

Benefits of Assisted Living



Assisted Living

In many Florida assisted living homes, senior citizens are offered a caring way of living, provided with housekeeping, laundry services, dining services, and fitness classes. They are equipped to help clients with daily activities such as bathing, dressing, eating, and personal grooming.

Isolation is one of the factors that make a person seek the comfort of assisted living. Many times, clients suffer from chronic illnesses and the loneliness that comes with isolation might accelerate the severeness of their health.

Being lonely can also be one of the causes of depression, which is linked as one of the triggers for chronic health diseases like dementia, heart disease, etc. It can also lead to unhealthy habits such as smoking or abusing their prescribed medications.

Senior citizens sometimes find themselves not able to keep up with their piling bills or online payments the more the years pass by. A growing pile of debt might be an indicator enough that it is time to seek the services of assisted living. Falling prey to financial scams may also put their savings and money at risk.

Hygiene is another crucial factor to think about as aging can make some senior citizens be afraid of getting baths due to fear of falling and injuring themselves. This might be another sign that you or your loved one may be in need of assisted living.
