Wales secured one of the most famous wins in their history, as they came back from a goal down to beat Belgium 3-1 and book their place in the semi-finals of Euro 2016.

Belgium took an early lead when Radja Nainggolan blasted home from outside the area after just thirteen minutes.

But Welsh heads didn’t drop and they found themselves level after half an hour, when Ashley Williams benefited from some sloppy defending to head home from a corner.

There was further joy for Chris Coleman’s men after the break, when free agent Robson-Kanu turned in the box and fired past Thibaut Courtois to put them in the lead.

The Belgians turned up the pressure, but Wales sealed one of the most famous victories in their history when Sam Vokes headed home with five minutes remaining.

Here’s what we learned from an historic night in Lille.
