The 23-year-old completed 75 minutes against the Galaxy, scoring the opening goal with a header from a Gylfi Sigurdsson cross.
Spurs coach Andre Villas-Boas dismissed questions about Bale's exclusion from Stuart Pearce's Olympic squad, stating that the Welshman had recovered quicker than expected.

"We could say that [we] took a risk. If you recall that 10 minutes into the game he was stretching himself, so he was feeling a little bit of muscle tightness but it was controllable.
"We welcome his recovery, to have a player of this dimension is fantastic."
