Wales reached a historic first major tournament semi-final by beating Belgium

Wales reached a historic first major tournament semi-final by beating Belgium in a pulsating game in Lille.
Belgium started well and took the lead when Radja Nainggolan fired into the top corner from 25 yards.
But Wales captain Ashley Williams, who was a doubt with a shoulder injury, headed in the equaliser from a corner.
After Belgium went close after the break, Hal Robson-Kanu's brilliant turn and finish, and a late Sam Vokes header set up a last-four tie with Portugal.
By reaching the semis, Wales have matched the best performance by a British side at a European Championship.
Radja Nainggolan sweetly struck the ball into the top corner from 25 yards after Eden Hazard laid him a pass in the 13th minute.
But Ashley Williams equalised for Wales in the 31st minute when he rose to powerfully head Aaron Ramsey’s corner into Belgium’s net.
Robson-Kanu gave Wales a 2-1 lead when he was played the ball by Ramsey before turning a Belgium defender and slotting his shot past Courtois in the 55th minute.
Vokes sealed the win in the final minutes with a third goal for Wales.
