Wales fans were in a very expectant mood after their finest performance ever at a major tournament in the summer Euros – and they were not disappointed by what they saw tonight.
The team struck twice late on in the first half to take a firm grip over Moldova in the European World Cup qualifiers, and the deal was sealed in the second half by the one and only Gareth Bale to take home a 4-0 victory.
It all began in the 38th minute with Bale’s perfect cross over to Sam Vokes to score a powerful header, followed swiftly by Joe Allen’s goal just minutes before the end.
Bale was then treated to a gift from Moldova’s Ion Jardan as he carelessly passed the ball back towards his own goal – and straight into the unmarked Bale who did not let that opportunity go by without a goal of his own.
Within the final seconds of injury time, Bale was awarded a penalty after being tripped up by Andrian Cascaval. And, of course, he scored again.
And so the love-in commenced, and continued, into the rest of the night.
