Bale steals the show, but Dan James’ stats encourage reading for Leeds


Bale steals the show with a match-winning hat-trick, but Dan James Wales' stats make the read encouraging for Leeds

Wales emerged victorious from a remarkable meeting with Belarus on Sunday, and the nation’s two players proved to be absolutely integral.

Bale in the treble

Rob Page’s men were back in action recently.

After pulling off a credible draw in a 0-0 friendly in Finland during the week, the Dragons this afternoon turned their attention to a much more meaningful outing, against Belarus.

The clash came amid Wales’ efforts to book a spot in next year’s fast-approaching Qatar World Cup.

Both countries, before the start of the game, had three points each in the Group E table, desperate for a second victory of the campaign to keep up with Belgium and the Czech Republic.

And when all was said and done in Kazan, it was Page’s Wales who simply got the job done.

90 frantic minutes of action, during which a trio of shots from the point were awarded and scored, saw the showdown go into injury time with the score locked at 2-2.

Take a step forward, Gareth Bale.

After scoring from the penalty spot in the 5th and 70th minutes respectively, the Real Madrid wing player completed a good afternoon’s work with a match-winning triplet to the death and broke the hearts of the Belarusians in the process:

James impresses

In turn, since then it has been a bit of a surprise to see Bale’s name, deservedly, take center stage in the post-game talk Sunday night.

However, as described above, the 32-year-old was not the only one of Wales’ attackers to impress against Belarus.

The other? Dan James.

The explosive open man James was deployed on the left flank by Chief Page this afternoon, and went on to shine amid an ever-threatening display of action.

It was his clever ball in the face of the goal that propelled fellow winger Bale to score the Dragons’ goal in the 93rd minute.

The extent of the 23-year-old’s impact is perfectly summed up in the stat line shown below, a sight that is sure to be well received by everyone at the new club Leeds United:
