To borrow and paraphrase a famous Ray Hudson quote, kids want to grow up to be Gareth Bale, and we doubt very much that’ll happen.

Bale doubled Real Madrid’s first half lead over Espanyol with this gorgeous free kick, made all the more appealing by its ping off the post and across the goal.

James Rodriguez has also scored for La Liga’s leaders, who look simply marvelous on the day.
