How Tottenham could do with someone like Gareth Bale right now.
The Welshman, who was linked with a return to north London as recently as January , scored a number of goals in the famous blue and white, but there was one in particular that sticks out during his 203 Spurs appearances. And, it was on this day seven years ago.
Tottenham were at London rivals West Ham and were drawing 2-2 heading into stoppage-time. Andre Villas Boas’ Men looked to be dropping crucial points in the race for Champions League football, but Bale had other ideas, and took matters into own hands by unleashing the most stunning strike from 30-yards that flew into the top corner to seal yet another memorable victory against the Hammers.
You’ve probably seen it enough times over the years, but why not watch ‘that’ goal once more in the video below.
? What a way to win it.
