Gareth Bale scores two brilliant goals

Gareth Bale scored two brilliant goals to help Wales defeat Austria in a World Cup play-off semi-final and take his country a step closer to qualifying for their first World Cup since 1958.

Austria’s Christoph Baumgartner hit the crossbar in the fifth minute before Bale’s majestic free-kick in Cardiff put them 1-0 up in the contest.

Bale, who is Wales’ captain, scored again early in the second half, shooting on the turn from a short corner.

Marcel Sabitzer’s deflected shot brought Austria back into the game, and although the visitors pressurized the home team, Wales defended well, to win the match 2-1.
