It was not an easy task for Bale and his Welsh teammates to advance to the knockout stages of the UEFA Euro, as most analysts predicted them to get knocked out in the group stage before the tournament even began. All things considered, Wales have already made history, but they might as well keep writing their name in the history books and advance one more round as they are facing what should be a manageable team in Northern Ireland.
Bale has scored three goals in three matches during the tournament, even though his team clearly lacks the creativity to feed him the ball with regularity. Bale has managed to be a threat off set pieces and that's mainly why Wales have come this far into the tournament.
If they want to beat Northern Ireland, second Welsh star Aaron Ramsey might need to step up his game and help Gareth Bale a bit more, though.
