Footballers across the world in praise of Gareth Bale's sensational strike

With the game level at 1-1, Bale put Bale ahead with a sensational overhead kick, which led former Manchester United defender Gary Neville to proclaim: 'That may be the best goal I’ve ever seen'.

Bale showed exemplary technique to connect with the ball in acrobatic style and beat the stranded Loris Karius.

The Welshman went on to add another goal later in the game, with Karius unable to hold his effort.

Bale's first goal received widespread praise on social media, with Millwall's Tim Cahill commenting: 'Wow what a goal'.

Former Manchester United defender Rio Ferdinand couldn't contain his excitement at the goal. He wrote: 'Ohmyyyyyyyyyyy what have I just witnessed'.
