Gareth Bale scored in his third-successive international as Wales toppled Norway 4-1 on Saturday.

The flying winger opened the scoring in the 11th minute of the friendly in Cardiff.

Steve Morison clipped a pass over the top of the Norwegian defence and Gareth hammered a fierce drive past Rune Almenning Jarstein at the goalkeeper's near post.

Craig Bellamy curled home a second goal as Wales led 2-0 at half-time but they allowed their visitors back into the game on the hour, Erik Huseklepp capitalising on a defensive mix-up.

Gareth helped make sure his side made it three wins on the trot for the first time since 2008 when he crossed for Sam Vokes to tap-in for 3-1 in the 88th minute.

Vokes struck again a minute later for the final 4-1 scoreline.
