Soccer-Bale scores on Real Madrid debut (Reuters)

MADRID, Sept 14 (Reuters) – World record signing Gareth Bale scored on his debut for Real Madrid when he converted a Dani Carvajal cross from close range to make it 1-1 in the 38th minute at Villarreal in La Liga on Saturday. Bale, who joined Real from Tottenham Hotspur for 100 million euros ($132.6 million) earlier this month, slid in under pressure from his marker and diverted the ball past goalkeeper Sergio Asenjo before being mobbed by his team mates. ($1 = 0.7542 euros) (Reporting by Iain Rogers; editing by Tony Jimenez)
