Bale shines again for Wales

Gareth Bale struck again as Wales finished their Euro 2012 qualifying campaign in style with a 1-0 win in Bulgaria on Tuesday night.

The winger - employed on the right by Gary Speed - scored the only goal of the game just before half-time in Sofia.

He picked up a pass from Adam Matthews in the right channel, cut inside and hit a low shot past Mikolay Mihaylov from the edge of the box.

Gareth ran Bulgaria ragged all night and was inches away from a stunning volley in the second half only to see his effort hit the underside of the crossbar and bounce to safety.

The goal was his second in as many internationals after scoring against Switzerland on Friday as Wales made it three wins on the trot in Group G.
