Twenty years from now, kids will ask their parents where they were when Gareth Bale scored THAT goal in the Champions League final.
After Real Madrid and Liverpool traded opening goals (Madrid’s on a brutal error from goalkeeper Loris Karius) early in the second half, the Welsh winger put the Spanish side ahead with an overhead kick that dropped the jaw of the entire soccer world.
It gets better every time we watch it.
Predictably, soccer Twitter lost its collective mind when the ball snuck into the top corner of the net past the leaping Karius.

Honestly you won’t see a goal scored in a #UCFinal better than that in our generation! Bale just done bits
