Gareth Bale wants to make more history after Wales's dominant win over Moldova

Gareth Bale says that Wales need to push on and make more history after beating Moldova 4-0 in their opening 2018 World Cup qualifier.

Gareth Bale has called on Wales to push on and make more history after opening their 2018 World Cup campaign with a dominant win over Moldova.

Chris Coleman's side reached the semi-finals of Euro 2016 in their first major tournament since 1958, and they carried on where they left off in the Cardiff City Stadium this evening.

Bale scored twice - once from the penalty spot - while Sam Vokes and Joe Allen also got on the scoresheet in a 4-0 rout over Moldova.

"We know these games are very difficult, the teams can be difficult to break down but we're learning to cope with that sort of play," Bale told Sky Sports News. "We're learning more as a team again.

"We enjoyed the past, but it's history now and it's time to make some more."

Bale is now Wales's second-highest all-time scorer with 24, which has put him ahead of Dean Saunders (22), Trevor Ford (23) and Ivor Allchurch (23).

Ian Rush currently holds the title, having scored 28 goals for the national team.
