Let us all take a moment to appreciate this.
Bale could have let it go.
Let me repeat : Bale could have let it go. He could have let the ball go. He was out. He freaking ran back in and shot.
He shot a goal that is probably one of the biggest in his careers. He shot the goal that was pivotal in Madrid’s win.
Bale. Is. Freaking. Amazing.
this goal will forever be the center of all my wet dreams
A crown for the king who could not be stopped
He was shoved out. He could have dived. He could have taken the foul and slowed the game down. Instead, he stayed on his feet, knowing more than anyone that nothing could stop him. Gareth Bale stepped up, and now there are no doubts. Madrid will remember this one legendary run for years to come. [Art by Kendall Henderson. Words by Eric]
