Bale appearance in the match against Galaxy causes a fury in the British press

Gareth Bale previously ruled himself out of the Team GB due to an injury, yet was fit enough to make appearance in the friendly fixture between Tottenham and LA Galaxy and even score a header, helping the team to finish in a draw. The player was substituted on the 74th minute.

Andre Villas-Boas welcomed the recovery of the player who was extremely important for the squad last season, stating the team took risk letting the midfielder play as he felt a little muscle tiredness.

Bale himself refused to make any comments about the situation. He could be banned for playing for Tottenham during the Olympics in case the Football Association of England decides to take any legal actions. According to the principles of FIFA if the club does not release a player, the side faces severe penalties.
