Video: Gareth Bale's trick shot highlights why Wales are on the rise

Don't worry England fans, at least we have the midfield general that is James Milner...

For the first time ever, Wales have gone above England in the FIFA rankings, leaving England fans horrified and Wales fans stunned. 

In fact, four years ago, Wales were ranked way down at 117th in the world, flash forward to 2015 and Chris Coleman's side are now, incredibly, ranked ninth in the world, above the likes of Spain, Italy, France & England! 

The Dragons have managed to beat the likes of Belgium and Israel in recent months as they push to qualify for a major tournament for the first time since 1958.

Sure, Wales have some good players like Aaron Ramsey, Ashley Williams and Ben Davies, but all of the attention has been on Gareth Bale – especially when you consider what he's been doing in training. 

The Real Madrid man managed to pull off a very cheeky trick which we reckon we won't be seeing from any England players in the near future. 

Just look at this! 

Holy angle Batman! This is reason enough for Wales to be ranked ninth in the world, especially if Bale keeps doing things like that.

C'mon Rooney and co, step up your weird angle shooting game!
