Bale fired in two remarkable free-kicks in the 2-1 Europa League victory over Lyon on Thursday evening at White Hart Lane.

And Gallas is full of praise for the near-unique way in which the Welsh winger strikes the football, revealing it is the result of a lot of hard work.

"Gareth Bale is working a lot on free-kicks during training sessions," he told L'Equipe.

"There are only two players in the world that can kick them that way, Cristiano Ronaldo and him.

"The ball comes back down so quickly, for keepers it is difficult because the trajectory is very difficult to read."

robably the first list I've come across in a long time where I agree with a large majority of what was written. Can't agree with everything though, Zaba has had an awful season by his standards, I'd put Monreal (a player who I've never rated) up there, gotta give credit where it's due, he's really stepped up his game.
