Gareth Bale declared he would never forget Tottenham's historic victory over Inter Milan after a jaw-dropping performance from the winger toppled the European champions.

Bale followed his sensational San Siro hat-trick two weeks earlier with another virtuoso display as White Hart Lane enjoyed one of its finest nights.

"It was great," Bale beamed afterwards. "It was special beating the European champions. It will be a night that will never be forgotten."

Once again, Bale tormented the so-called best right-back in the world, with Maicon reduced to what appeared a quivering wreck by full-time after the Welshman laid on Spurs' second and third goals in the 3-1 win.

Long before then, Spurs fans were singing "Taxi for Maicon!" - something that did not go unnoticed by Bale and his team-mates.

"A few of the lads were on about it after the match," said the 21-year-old Wales star, who admitted he had never known an atmosphere like it.

"The supporters were unbelievable. They acted as a 12th man. They have been fantastic all season and we capped it off for them tonight. It was a special night."

Bale revealed just how important his San Siro hat-trick had been for his and his team-mates' confidence after they went 4-0 and a man down two weeks ago.

"We all had the belief that we could hurt Inter and we showed that," he said.

"We were unlucky to go down to 10 in the San Siro. With 11 men on the pitch, we know what we can do."
