Bale's Hat trick Rescues Wales From An Embarrassing Defeat

Wales made a strong start as Bale's first penalty gave them an early lead, but conceeded two goals in two first-half minutes as goals from Vitali Lisakovich and Pavel Sedko put Belarus in front.

Lisakovich scored from the spot after Chris Gunter was penalised for a raised foot, before an unmarked Sedko punished shaky defending from Wales, who were fortunate not to be further behind at half-time.

Bale scored his second spot-kick to bring Wales level midway through the second half and, in the third of four minutes of injury time, the captain came to his country's rescue with a low shot that squirmed under Belarus goalkeeper Sergei Chernik and into the net. In the 90+3 minutes, Bale latched on a pass from James to win the match for Wales 

His goals against Belarus were his first since since 2019. Bale went 16 international games without scoring a goal which ended today
