“We’re really looking forward to starting the new season”, said the Welshman.
Gareth Bale was chosen as the best player in the match against Roma. The Whites’ forward, who started and played 56 minutes at the MetLife Stadium, was a key player in the 2-1 victory against the Italian side. In the second minute, he played a sensational long pass to Asensio to open the scoring and, in the 15th minute, he notched the second goal thanks to his speed, dribbling and finish. Bale had already scored in the second match of the tour, against Juventus.
Bale: "We work hard every day to get better"
"We have a new coach who has brought new ideas and we work hard every day to get better. We’re doing what he asks of us, we’re scoring goals and we’re winning matches, so we’re doing well. We have to keep improving and we’re really looking forward to starting the new season".
