Tottenham’s Gareth Bale karate kicks ball for a slick goal [GIF, Video]

ninja kick goal soccer game

Tottenham and Wigan faced off in a Saturday match that resulted in a draw. However, if soccer counted style points, Gareth Bale’s slick karate kick for a goal would definitely have put Tottenham over the top.

With Wigan’s Maynor Figueroa and goalie Joel Robles wasting time kicking the ball back and forth, Bale took matters into his own hands (but really we mean feet). As Robles attempted to clear it, Bale launched forward like he was about to land his cleat into Robles’ face. Instead, the ball bounced off the bottom of his boot, finding nothing but the back of the net.
