Wales created a history

100

Wales reached the semi-finals of a major tournament for the first time after a stirring fightback to beat Belgium in the European Championship quarter-final in Lille.

Now they will meet Portugal for first semi in Lyon on 6th July.

Absent from major tournaments for 58 years, Wales have not only ended a barren half a century but propelled Welsh football into unchartered territory.

Previous Welsh sides have claimed iconic results, such as a 2-1 win over Hungary at the 1958 World Cup, a 1991 victory against then world champions Germany and a qualifying triumph against Italy in 2002.

Former Wales striker Dean Saunders said: “Heart, desire, determination, organisation – there is a plan that has been put in place and it shows what you can achieve – you start thinking – is our name on it?”

John Hartson said: “If I was a chairman of a Premier League club I would be making Hal Robson-Kanu my next signing. What a goal. He sent Thomas Meunier for a cup of tea and a piece of toast with that turn.”

Nainggolan put Belgium ahead with a 25-yard strike but Wales captain Williams headed in from a corner to equalise in a first half with chances at both ends.

Welsh celebrations reached stratospheric levels when Hal Robson-Kanu, a striker without a club, gave them the lead with a divine turn and finish.

Aaron Ramsey was setting up two of the three goals – and it is a crushing blow that both the Arsenal midfielder and Ben Davies will miss the semi-final after picking up a second tournament booking.

First Semi between Bale vs Ronaldo, Both play for real madrid and both play as a striker for Real Madrid so now its interesting to see how Madrid team mates play against in face-off.

Belgium feel bad after his 4 goals victory over Hungary in Round-16 that they are not able to score more goals.

As per our prediction it was one of the high scoring game as compare in this tournament games.
