Posts Tagged ‘Semi-finals’

This evening, Wales try to continue their extraordinary advance in the 2016 Euros. After beating Northern Ireland last Saturday, this evening we take on Belgium for a place in the semi-finals. Should we win, we will face Portugal who beat Poland last night on penalties after a 1-1 scoreline after extra time. The match is being played in Lille, and kick-off is at 20:00 BST (19:00 GMT). We were in the same qualifying group as Belgium for these Euros, so we have already played them home and away in the last 18 months. We beat them in Cardiff, and drew 0-0 in Brussels. So, we should nothing to fear going into this game.

After the spectacular exit of England on Monday evening to Iceland, Wales are the only country from the British Isles left in the tournament. Of course, the London-based media have been dominated with the post-mortem of how England could lose to a country as small as Iceland, which has nicely taken the attention away from Wales as we prepare for our biggest match in 58 years.

I think this evening will be a tough test, but Wales have nothing to lose. We have already exceeded our expectations, so we should go into this game with a positive attitude and see what the evening brings. Let’s just hope Gareth Bale is at his best, he certainly has performed superbly for Wales during this tournament so far.
