There’s no doubt about it – Gareth Bale has been the undoubted star of the Euros so far. With three goals and an assist to his name, the Real Madrid star has inspired Wales all the way to the quarter-finals on their first ever European Championship experience.
Unsurprisingly the Welsh support in France is going crazy for Bale and Co. Not in their wildest dreams did the nation with a population of only 3 million expect to reach the last eight of the Euros. 50,000 Wales fans made the journey to Paris for Chris Coleman’s side’s 1-0 win over Northern Ireland in the round of 16.
The small nation will offer plenty support today as they face a rematch with qualification rivals Belgium. The last time the two sides met in June 2015, Gareth Bale was the man to decide the game with his solitary goal handing Wales a crucial 1-0 win to help secure their place at the Euro finals. Wales fans will be hoping history repeats itself in Lille.
And it’s clear Bale’s popularity transcends beyond his own nation. Bale is a star player for arguably the biggest football team in the world and with that, all Real Madrid fans are behind Bale.
From the Madrid fanatic in the Middle East to the Bale super fan in the Foot Locker video below, it’s clear for all to see there are huge amounts of fans supporting Bale this weekend.
