Tottenham fans in joint plea after Gareth Bale's stunning opener for Wales vs Austria


Supporters of Tottenham Hotspur have taken to social media in numbers on Thursday evening, to react to the latest moment of brilliance produced by former talisman Gareth Bale.

Bale, now 32, is of course currently locked in action with Wales.

In an absolutely crucial fixture, the Dragons welcomed the aforementioned Austria to the Cardiff City Stadium, for one of potentially two World Cup playoff qualifying fixtures over the course of the coming week.

And, as things stand, it's that man Bale who has proven the difference.

With 45 minutes played in the Welsh capital, Robert Page's hosts lead by a goal to nil, owing to a frankly stunning individual effort on the part of their star attacker.

After Harry Wilson was felled on the edge of the Austria area, Bale stood over the ensuing free-kick, before directing a wonderful dipping strike in off the underside of the crossbar:

'Get him signed up'

And, as alluded to above, Bale's latest heroics have, in turn, been taken full notice of by one club fanbase in particular.

Those in question? The Tottenham faithful.

Taking to social media in their droves, those of a Lilywhites persuasion have called for the club to bring their one-time standout performer back to north London for a 3rd stint this summer, amid Bale's ongoing struggles in Madrid:
