Gareth Balehas just produced a remarkable assist forAaron Ramsey, who put Wales ahead vs Turkey.
The Real Madrid man failed to make an impact in Wales’ first Group A game of Euro 2020, a 1-1 draw with Switzerland.
But he’s made an impact in Baku by pinging an inch-perfect ball into the Turkey box for Ramsey to latch on to.
Ramsey made no mistake with his chest control before scooping the ball over Ugurcan Cakir.
What a ball by Gareth Bale, and a tidy finish from Aaron Ramsey.

It means Bale alone is now responsible for half of Wales’ assists at the Euros.
Fans have reacted to his performance so far and it’s looking like the player we all fell in love with at Tottenham Hotspur.

Bale spent last season on loan at Tottenham Hotspur and it wasn’t the happy return many anticipated.
Despite scoring 11 goals in the Premier League, Bale only played 20 games and had his fair share of injury problems.
Victory for Wales would put them in a good position to qualify from the group ahead of a showdown with Italy on Sunday.

Roberto Mancini’s side ran out comfortable 3-0 winners over Turkey on Friday eveningand take on Switzerland later tonight.
Bale had a chance to get on the scoresheet himself with a penalty in the second half, but blazed it sky high.
Do you think Wales will qualify for the knockout stages?
