This is all just a little bit of fun, and any expense at a Bale joke here comes for a good cause.

Yesterday, Paolo Dybala and Gareth Bale announced that they were to play each in FIFA, streamed live on Twitch, to raise money for UNICEF.

“It’s the least we can do to raise money for Unicef and the battle against this virus,” said Bale.

“Obviously everyone is stuck at home and trying to stay safe so let’s try and raise as much money as we can.”

Bale chose to play with Manchester City, while Dybala played with Real Madrid — with Bale on the bench. While Bale opened the scoring with a goal from Sergio Aguero; Dybala scored three unanswered goals to win 3-1.
