Inter Milan 4-3 Tottenham Hotspur: Gareth Bale Hat-trick Pulls Spurs Within One

Gareth bale has given the footballing world pause, let alone the suddenly nervous crowd at the San Siro. Now in the 92nd minute in Milan, Bale has scored goals in the 90th and 91st minutes to bring visiting Tottenham, down 4-0 at half, to within another Bale shot of a draw.

Bale’s 90th minute tally was strangely similar to his first goal – a direct charge down the left, finished far post past Julio César. Once minute later, a Internazionale turnover in their own half saw Aaron Lennon penetrate into the box, draw defenders to him before laying-off for Bale’s third goal. As was the case with the preceding two, the shot beat Cesar far post.

Whether Spurs can find a fourth, Bale has given his club, playing with ten men through the match, reason to hope for most in round four at White Hart Lane. Then, Bale and Tottenham will welcome the holders to White Hart Lane. If today’s second half is any indication, we should see a much more competitive match then today’s Milan-controlled affair.
