It is a dreary day for soccer fans, with the usual slate of dozens of club matches interrupted for a handful of international ones. But at least we have some competitive Euro 2016 qualifiers, where we can see the Welsh Gareth Bale unleash this free kick goal against Israel. With a golden generation that includes Bale, Aaron Ramsey (who scored the first goal of the game), Joe Allen, and Ashley Williams—as well as a relatively easy qualifying group—this is Wales's best chance to advance to their first major international tournament since the 1958 World Cup.
