Gareth Bale has thanked the 2014 World Cup football, the Brazuca, after he scored the wondergoal that won the Copa del Rey for Real Madrid against Barcelona on Wednesday night.
The ball was being used specially during the final, but will be seen throughout the World Cup.
Thank you for your cooperation last night @brazuca! Nice working with you. #teamwork pic.twitter.com/VEy0pjQxHp

Naturally, because the World Cup ball has its own Twitter account, the ball responded:
.@GarethBale11 Same to you Gareth, I just did what your feet told me to do. #ballin

Bleacher Report is never one to underplay the role of a football, but in its considered opinion, that goal had a bit more to do with Bale being quick than the Brazuca.
