Tottenham’s Gareth Bale Scores Bizarre Goal After Defensive Blunder By Wigan [VIDEO]

Gareth Bale took advantage of a bizarre defensive blunder by Wigan Athletic today to open up the scoring at the DW Stadium.

Wigan defender Maynor Figueroa and goalkeeper Joel Robles were passing the ball back and forth in their own area until Bale capitalized on an opportunity to pressure Robles, and rushed down on the ball to rebound it into the back of the net.

The match of the day took off at a feverish pace. After the goal by Bale, Wigan equalized through a header by Emmerson Boyce. At this rate, this key match could end up being the best one of the weekend if the end-to-end action continues.
