Bale helped the national team qualify for EURO 2016 and 2020 and its first World Cup since 1958 when he captained the side at World Cup 2022 in Qatar.

He is also Wales' record goalscorer (41 goals) having taken over that mantle from Flintshire's own Ian Rush (who had 28 goals) in March 2018.

As well as being Wales' top goalscorer ever, Bale also holds the record for the most caps earned by a Wales player - with 111 of those to his name at the time of his retirement.

Now, following the attacker's retirement from the beautiful game, the Wrexham Football Museum for Wales has unveiled that it is home to one his shirts.

A social media post from the museum team read: "Thank you Gareth Bale. This is the shirt worn by Gareth in his final international appearance on #Welsh soil - v Poland, 25 September 2022.

"Now part of our ever growing Welsh Football Collection here in #wrexham."
