Real Madrid’s Gareth Bale scored two goals to help Wales to a 2-1 win against Austria on Thursday.
Wales will now face Scotland or Ukraine in the playoff final to decide who qualifies for the 2022 World Cup in Qatar.
Despite limited game time again at Real Madrid this season, the Welshman gave the football world a reminder of his ability with two goals from the top drawer.
The 32-year old’s first goal came from a free kick in the 25th minute.
Bale stepped up to strike the ball from 25 yards into the top corner of the Austrian net giving keeper Heinz Lindner no chance.
The second goal for Bale came in the 51st minute when the ball broke to him from a corner.
Ben Davies touched the ball to Bale in the box where he turned and hit the top corner again with another precision finish.
