Real Madrid star Gareth Bale reflects on his favourite goal for Tottenham Hotspur.

Real Madrid winger Gareth Bale has revealed his favourite goal for Tottenham Hotspur.

It is an unusual choice, and the Wales international himself admits that.

“I know it's weird, but my favourite goal for Spurs is actually this one away at Swansea,” the 25-year-old told The Telegraph.

“It was a snap-shot and something I'd been trying in training for a while. When it's something you've been working on and it comes off, you're extra pleased with the goal.

“People talk about Jan's (Vertonghen) assist with this one and it was a beautiful pass. But I had set him up 10 minutes earlier, so he owed me….”

Bale was referring to his strike against Swansea City on March 30, 2013. It was an FA Cup tie in the 2012-13 season, and his goal came in the 20th minute, helping the North London club to a 2-1 victory.

The 25-year-old has since gone on to score several key goals both for Wales and Real Madrid, most notably in the finals of the Champions League and the Copa del Rey last season.
