On a night that the Welsh character was well tested, the team did not disappoint, coming from a goal down to beat a higher ranked Belgium side and Gareth Bale says the 3 – 1 win was well deserved.
Radja Naingollan scored the opener for Belgium but Wales answered with three goals, from skipper Ashley Williams, Hal Robson Kanu and Sam Vokes to beat the team ranked second in the world.
Bale lauded his team mates for the win, stating that they fought hard to go through and assured of more as they head to the last four.
“We fought as hard as anyone and covered every blade of grass and we thoroughly deserve to be in the semi-final,” Bale told BBC Sport.
“We know what we are doing, we need to just keep enjoying ourselves and doing what we have been and we can go as far as we want.
“It feels incredible to have made the semi-final, but we said it in all our interviews, we aren’t just here to make up the numbers.”
Wales will face Portugal in the semis.
