Gareth Bale scored a hat-trick in the China Cup football tournament as Wales romped to a 6-0 win over China in Ryan Giggs first game in charge of the European nation here on Thursday night.

Wilson claimed an assist to go with a goal on his first worldwide start as a cute reverse ball allowed Vokes to get the better of something vaguely resembling an offside trap and roll in a 57th minute finish.

Bale marked the dawn of Giggs's tenure by scoring his first hat-trick for Wales and becoming his country's all-time leading goalscorer.

Taking to the field from kick-off in Ryan Giggs' first game as boss of the national team, Bale made an swift impact at Nanning's Guangxi Sports Center Stadium by crafting an excellent second-minute solo goal. He lifts everyone as he has an X-factor. 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.

And just before half time Bale laid a pass into the path of Liverpool winger Harry Wilson who celebrated his 21st birthday by scoring his first worldwide goal. His last hat-trick for his club side Real Madrid was against Deportiva La Coruna on 9 January 2016.

That marks Bale's first ever global hat-trick and Wales' first in 14 years - specifically, since Robert Earnshaw managed the same feat against Scotland back in 2004.

Marcello Lippi's team found themselves a goal behind after a minute as Bale latched onto a ball over the top and curled past China goalkeeper Yan Junling.

"It is a massive honour and achievement for me", Bale told BBC Sport Wales. "There are still things to work on, but we're happy with the way we're going".

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.

Although Bale has suffered another injury-hit season at the Santiago Bernabeu, he has scored 12 goals and provided seven assists in all competitions.
