Bale is a hugely influential figure for Wales, sitting second in the country's all-time scoring charts with 26 goals, two behind Ian Rush.
Speaking of his record-breaking night, Bale said he felt good tonight when stepping on the pitch.
"On a personal note it's great to break the record, but I could not have done it without my team-mates". We did exactly what Ryan asked.
Some generous defending from the hosts midway through the first half of the China Cup match allowed the Real Madrid man to pull level with Liverpool great Rush on 28 goals in Wales colours. Not many people do that.
"It's a fantastic moment for Gareth and he fully deserves it".
China were extremely poor and could not get near Bale as he tore the home defence to shreds.
How many more goals do you think Bale can score for Wales?
9-year-old boy shoots sister over fight about video game
Well, an incident was reported in MS where a nine-year-old boy allegedly shot his own sister, a 13-year-old over a video game. I can't answer that. "We want to do what's right and we're going to get it right". "I do know its a tragedy".
Latching onto a pass from Bale, the youngster cut inside onto his deadly left foot and sent the ball sailing into the far corner. China attempted to play the ball out from the back but passed straight to Vokes.
The Burnley striker duly got in on the act, diverting Andy King's knockdown into the bottom corner following a wonderful raking pass from Bale, who nearly had a hat-trick when Yan beat a sweetly struck 20-yarder to safety.
The 28-year-old has received a rapturous reception since the squad's arrival in Nanning and he thrilled those in attendance with a brilliant second-minute solo goal.
Bale was later replaced in the 63rd minute by Benjamin Woodburn.
"It is right up there, a major honour and a massive achievement". Wu caused Wales problems whenever he moved near the penalty area and he was able to impress with the little possession that came his way.
Sam Vokes proved to be an effective supporting cast as he scored two and assisted another couple to help his team reach the final of the China Cup, scheduled to be played on Monday. The possibility of Bale going up against Luis Suárez and Edinson Cavani is enticing.
