Wales took on Belgium in one of the most enticing quarter finals of Euro 2016 on Friday evening and the match certainly didn’t disappoint.
Currently linked with a high profile switch to Chelsea, defensive midfielder Radja Nainggolan arguably scored the goal of the tournament with an absolute worldie just 12 minutes into the game.
Although the Belgian’s were odds on favourites going into the tie, those who thought the Red Devils would run away with the game after the first goal were sorely mistaken.
The Welsh worked their way more and more into the game and after 25 minutes, a wonderfully created chance by Aaron Ramsey could only be stopped by a jaw dropping save from Thibaut Courtois.
The save however did not zap the confidence out of Chris Coleman’s men and not long after Courtois’s phenomenal save, the Chelsea man was picking the ball out of the back of the net… twice.
The Belgians pushed and pushed to find the equalizer as the match ticked towards its conclusion but with 5 minutes to go, they over committed themselves and Sam Vokes but the game to bed for Wales.
