WATCH: When Tottenham’s Gareth Bale tore Maicon and Inter to shreds in the Champions League

Gareth Bale was taking no prisoners when Tottenham hosted Inter in the group stages of the 2010-11 Champions League season.

WHAT HAPPENED? Holders Inter travelled to White Hart Lane in November 2010 knowing the hosts were on the brink of group stage elimination. However, a dazzling performance from a young Bale inspired his side to a 3-1 victory and put them within touching distance of the last 16. The Welshman gave Brazilian right-back Maicon a torrid time all evening, and popped up with assists to strikers Peter Crouch and Roman Pavlyuchenko on 61 and 89 minutes, respectively.
