Game Details

Gareth Bale became Wales' all-time leading goal scorer thanks to a hat trick over China to ensure Ryan Giggs' spell as manager of the national side got off to an emphatic start.

Bale has endured a difficult season with Real Madrid this term, but he put his club woes behind him to dazzle the Chinese defence -- scoring his 29th goal for his country with his third goal of the night which saw him break Ian Rush's record haul.

Jupp Heynckes candidly explains why he was absent from the bench for Bayern Munich's 2-1 win over Schalke last Saturday.
Bayern Munich restored their 18-point lead atop the Bundesliga with a 2-1 win over Schalke, thanks to goals from Robert Lewandowski and Thomas Muller.

Bayern Munich winger Arjen Robben has told Sportbuzzer that he has no plans to retire and could follow in the footsteps of Bastian Schweinsteiger and move to Major League Soccer, saying he is also considering China and Qatar.

Robben, 34, has won six Bundesliga titles and four DFB Pokals during his time at the club. He also scored Bayern's late winner in the all-German Champions League final against Borussia Dortmund at Wembley in 2013, but his current one-year deal expires this summer.
