How to play like Gareth Bale: Leave defenders for dead

Want to upgrade your game to Welsh wizard level? We’ve got just the drill…

When he’s in full flight there’s no stopping the thrilling Welshman. He hits the nitro button and leaves defenders rooted to the spot like a learner driver stalling at traffic lights.
