There have been unbelievable scenes across the globe with Welsh communities celebrating the success of the Welsh football team out in France...
Cymru overcome a resilient Northern Ireland side in the Parc Des Princes - a tense and messy derby game looked like it would go to the wire until another quality Gareth Bale cross was turned into his own net by an Irish defender - cue scenes that I have never witnessed before and the red Army danced in the stands until long after the final whistle and into the Paris Streets that was illuminated by a Welsh Eiffel tower....
So next up in the Quarter Final was the highly rated and much fancied Belgians with superstars Like De Bruyne, Lukaku and Eden Hazard - the game was to be played in Lille on the Belgian French border and an estimated 125,000 Belgians - the red Devil Army made it into Lille - Surprisingly not everyone had wrote of Cookie Coleman's boys - BBC pundits like Alan Shearer, Gary Linekar and Rio Ferdinand all backed a Welsh win and were all clearly behind Cymru...
When Belgium took an early lead and dominated the early stages of the game- you good be forgiven for thinking that the Euro show was over and that worst case scenario Belgium would rout the boys in red like they had Ireland and Hungary but No
No No No No No No No No No
Ashley Williams the captain of Wales had other ideas

Hal Robson Kanu Pushed it a little further with
A Cruyff turn that the late old Dutch Maestro would have been landed with
Robson Kanu took three defenders out and sent them out of the stadium
and buried the ball in the back of the Belgian Onion Bag
We took the lead with style, with panache
and then some more
because after some heroic defending and some quality spells of possession
Chris Gunter flies down the flank and puts a cross in that was met by Sam Vokes with the sweetest header I ever did see....
Cue Bedlam - the victory was sealed - we are in our first ever Tournament Semi Final
The smallest nation to have ever reached the Euro Semi Finals
We play Portugal without Arron Ramsey and without Ben Davies
The game is in Lille
The San Portablo 1901 label has said from the start that
Wales name is on the Cup
