Sports Euro 2016: Wales Defeat Belgium to Set up Semifinal Clash With Portugal



For the first time in history, Wales will be playing in the semifinals of the Euros.

Gareth Bale's side on Friday evening defeated a star-studded Belgium side by 3 goals to 1 to set up a semifinal clash with Portugal.

Radja Nainggolan put Belgium ahead with a thunderous 25-yard strike but Wales captain Ashley Williams headed a corner in to conclude an exciting first half display from both teams.

Minutes into the second half Hal Robson-Kanu, a striker without a club, gave Wales the lead with a divine turn and finish.

Substitute Sam Vokes' header ensured victory after Wales sustained heavy pressure from Belgium in the later stages of the match.

The win ensures a mouth-watering clash between Wales and Portugal, which will ensure a duel between Real Madrid stars Gareth Bale and Cristiano Ronaldo.
