Take a look at this selection of the best jokes from Andorra v Wales as Gareth Bale scores twice to earn a 2-1 victory in the Euro 2016 qualification match.


The Welsh were eventually able to overcome an early Andorran penalty, their first goal in 18 competitive matches and the first time they have taken the lead in a Euro qualifier, thanks in no small part to the Real Madrid superstar.

A stunning late Bale free-kick provided a winning start for Chris Coleman’s side at the 3.3k-capacity Estadio Nacional and ensured Wales left without the honour of becoming the first team not to beat Andorra in 41 Euro qualification games.

The 3G pitch and the former Spurs player’s Ronaldo-esque goal celebration were also notable talking points.

Bet he gets a great reception "@philblanche: Apparently Andorran striker Gabriel Riera's day job is fitting radios into cars. #ANDvWAL

We all laugh. But Pardew would go one up top in Andorra.

LEGEND: Ildefons Lima is Andorra's all-time leading goalscorer with 4 goals! Surely he deserves a statue?! #ANDvWAL pic.twitter.com/F16GRvfxf3

Not seen a single player even attempt going to ground on Andorra's synthetic turf…can't tell me this is a surface fit for football.

I didn't know Wales had any blushes to spare.

A pitch invasion for taking the lead against Andorra…Bale ushering the fans off in embarrassment no doubt.

Bale's obsession with Ronaldo is a bit creepy to be fair.

Wales didn't have anyone with any genuine class. Someone proven on the world stage! They really missed David Vaughan tonight! #nffc #wales
