Wales made history by beating Belgium 3-1 in a Euro 2016 quarterfinal clash on Friday night in Lille, France.

With the victory, Wales, which has not participated in a major tournament since their 1958 World Cup appearance, reached the Euro’s semifinals.

Belgium's flamboyant winger Radja Nainggolan gave Belgium an early lead with a tremendous strike to the top-right corner, but Wales' defender Ashley Williams cancel out Belgium's lead after a well-placed header.

The teams went to the locker room with a 1-1 draw, but Wales took over in the second half.

Forward Robson-Kanu gave Wales the much-anticipated lead in the 55th minute, with a great control of the ball that left two defenders wrong-footed and left him one-on-one with Belgium's goalkeeper Thibaut Courtois.

Belgium, also known as the Red Devils, looked rattled after the goal, and that gave Wales more chances to score.

Sam Vokes, Welsh forward, clinched the deal for his team in the 86th-minute goal, and the crowd went wild.

Wales will face Portugal in the semifinals.
