Gareth Bale runs to celebrate with Giorgio Chiellini as he scores his first MLS goal for new team Los Angeles FC July 24, 2022 – Posted in: Soccer
Los Angeles FC’s new marquee signing Gareth Bale netted his first goal for the club on Saturday night.
And the striker’s celebration certainly showed just how buzzing he was to get off the mark.
The Welshman had already made his debut for the American side, coming on as a substitute in his side’s 2-1 win against Nashville.
And it’s only taken him two games for him to show what he can do.
It was by no means the most jaw dropping finish you’ll ever see, with him driving low into the bottom corner of the Sporting Kansas City keeper’s net.
But it was the lead up to Bale‘s first goal across the pond that displayed just how deadly he can be with the ball at his feet.

And Bale quite literally couldn’t hold his tongue about how pleased he was to score.
After letting out a vocal celebration, the striker ran towards his new club’s dug out, running to embrace Italian international and Los Angeles FC centre-back, Giorgio Chiellini.
And MLS camera angles put in slow motion reveal that Bale pulled off some hilarious facial expressions as he approached his teammate.
