Gareth Bale has scored two free kicks so far in the on-going Euro 2016, and says he does not need the advice of Cristiano Ronaldo when it comes to free-kicks stating clearly that he has a different style to his Real Madrid team-mate.
The Wales superstar scored free-kicks in each of Wales’ first two games at Euro 2016 and he could become the first to score three in a single European Championship.
In stark contrast, Real Madrid team-mate Ronaldo is yet to score from 36 free-kick attempts at major tournaments, with the Portugal star failing to score from five so far this tournament in draws against Iceland and Austria.
When asked if his set-piece success was down to any advice from Ronaldo, Bale said: “No, not really. I do it my way. I like my own style.
“We obviously practice together in training but on different sides. It depends where I am on the pitch and what side.
“I hit it slightly different depending where the ball is and how close you are.
“You always stand over them and think ‘please just go in,’ but it’s not always the case.
“So it’s nice to see the hard work pay off and see two go in so far.”
