Gareth Bale is serving notice that he is ready to shine without Cristiano Ronaldo, factoring in both goals as Real Madrid wrapped up their U.S. tour with a 2-1 win over Roma on Tuesday.

A handsome inside-of-the-boot pass from Gareth Bale to find Marco Asensio in a 1v1 situation with Roma keeper Robin Olsen saw Madrid's first goal of the night just two minutes into the game.

Real Madrid is hoping Bale is ready to fully evolve into the player they signed for a world record fee in 2013.

Madrid have been getting used to life without Ronaldo, who joined Juventus earlier in the summer, during the International Champions Cup (ICC) campaign in the United States.

"We do what the coach wants, scoring goals, winning games".

Dallas County announces first West Nile Virus death of 2018
In an outbreak in 2012, more than 1,000 people were infected and 36 people died across four North Texas counties. The Health Department wants to remind the public that the virus is present and has been around for many years.

"We want to start the new season".

Assuming you've not already scrolled down past all the words above, here is Asensio's goal and, more importantly, Bale's brilliant pass.

Provider Bale would then net his team's second of the night, running onto a Dani Carvajal long ball down the right flank, cutting back onto his left and then firing back across the goal after wrong-footing Olsen to double Real's lead.

Los Blancos were mostly unplayable in the first half as Julen Lopetegui opted for a near full-strength line-up - Dani Ceballos and Sergio Reguilon being the only youngsters to make the starting XI.

With 10 minutes to play, sub Patrik Schick glanced a wide-open header off-target from Kevin Strootman's looping cross, arguably Roma's best attacking chance of the game to that point.
