Howler of a header lets Bale in to give Wales a monumental win over Belgium

The only goal of the game arrived with a little help from the visitors.

This smart chest and finish from Gareth Bale put the hosts  ahead after 25 minutes, but that high looping ball direct to his chest was courtesy of a header from Radja Nainggolan who didn’t see the world’s most expensive player when directing his ball to Thibault Courtois after Aaron Ramsey’s cross was easily cleared.
