Bale is Brazil quality, claims Gomes

Gareth Bale would not look out of place in the Brazilian national side, according to his Tottenham team-mate Heurelho Gomes.[LNB] Rising Spurs star Bale hit the headlines earlier this week when he netted a sensational hat-trick in Wednesday's 4-3 UEFA Champions League defeat at Inter Milan. [LNB]Brazil goalkeeper Gomes, who was dismissed at the Giuseppe Meazza after just eight minutes, rates Bale as one of the top wingers in the world. [LNB]And the shot-stopper says the 21-year-old Welshman would have no trouble fitting in with the Samba stars.[LNB]"Gareth looks a bit Brazilian the way he plays," said Gomes. "I think he could get in the Brazil national team, he is playing so well. [LNB]"Gareth is on fire. His three goals against Inter were unbelievable and if he had got his hat-trick a little bit sooner, I think we would have got a fourth!" [LNB]Cardiff-born Bale's display at the San Siro has inevitably seen him attract the attention of several top clubs, including Inter and their fierce local rivals AC Milan. [LNB]While manager Harry Redknapp insists the winger is not for sale, Bale's team-mate Alan Hutton feels Spurs could face a tough battle keeping hold of the star winger in the January transfer window. [LNB]"Of course there are a lot of teams who would want Gareth," said Hutton. [LNB]"He could play for any team in the world so Tottenham will be desperate to hold on to him, he's a great talent on the big stage. [LNB]"Maicon is supposed to be one of the best full-backs in the world but Gareth caused him all sorts of problems (on Wednesday) so I am sure he can do that anywhere in the world. [LNB]"Gareth's finishing is deadly. You might expect it from natural goalscorers like Jermain Defoe but Gareth also has that in his locker. [LNB]"He has that magic touch for goals and he proved it again against the Champions League title holders Inter Milan. [LNB]"To get three goals anywhere is good for your pride but to get three goals in Italy against the champions is pretty sensational. [LNB]"You come to expect it of him. I hope he scores a hat-trick every time he plays now!"
