Gareth Bale goal for Southampton: Watch the Real Madrid man’s first strike in professional football

It has been 10 years (06/08/06) since a 17-year-old Gareth Bale scored his first goal in professional football.

Graduating from the Southampton academy Bale was playing against Derby and gave Lee Camp no chance by curling a brilliant free-kick past him. It looked to have put Saints on course for a win, especially when Bradley Wright-Phillips put the club in front.

But a late goal from Paul Peschisolido salvaged a 2-2 draw.

A year later Bale was bought by Tottenham and has done pretty well for himself since.
