Euro 2016: Robson-Kanu fires Wales to the semi-final as they Trashed Belgium 3-1 


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


Hal Robson-Kanu, a striker without a club, gave them the lead with a divine turn and finish. scoring a sensational goal as Wales came from behind to stun Belgium 3-1 in Friday's Euro 2016 quarterfinal in Lille and reach their first major tournament semifinal.
Radja Nainggolan gave Belgium a 13th-minute lead, but Ashley Williams equalised before a dazzling strike from Robson-Kanu, whose contract with English second-tier club Reading expired on Thursday, and a late header by substitute Sam Vokes earned Wales a historic victory.
In beating Belgium, who they also defeated in qualifying, Coleman's men surpassed the Wales greats of 1958, whose quarterfinal showing at that year's World Cup in Sweden had been the country's best previous achievement.
But they will have to do without both Ben Davies and Aaron Ramsey, who set up two of the Wales goals, after they received bookings that ruled them out of the semifinal.
Wales talisman Gareth Bale will now go head-to-head with his Real Madrid team-mate Cristiano Ronaldo when the tournament's last British representatives face Portugal in Lyon on Wednesday.
