Published 8 Comments

Wales secured arguably the greatest victory in their history on Friday night as they overcame Belgium by three goals to one during their Euro 2016 quarter-final encounter.

Chris Coleman's side went behind on the night after midfielder Radja Nainggolan struck a brilliant goal from 30 yards, but Wales well and truly hit back as goals from captain Ashley Williams, Hal Robson-Kanu and Sam Vokes secured the victory.

It was a night to savor for the Welsh faithful, who have for so long had nothing to shout about on the international stage.
