GARETH BALE was hooked off at half-time in Wales’ crunch clash with England.
The former Real Madrid star scored the Dragons’ only goal of the tournament so far when he converted a penalty in the draw versus USA.

But the 33-year-old was not at his best against England and was taken off with Brennan Johnson replacing him.
Bale only touched the ball eight times in the match.
But him coming off is a huge surprise with Wales needing a moment of magic as they attempt to avoid going home.
