Belgium 1-3 Wales - Dragons in historic Euros semifinal

Wales rallied from an early deficit to defeat Belgium 3-1 and advance to the semifinals in their first European Championship.
Ashley Williams cancelled out Radja Nainggolan's opener, before Hal Robson-Kanu's spectacular goal put Wales ahead and Sam Vokes finished it off with five minutes to play.
Belgium were wondering how they missed a chance to open the scoring in the seventh minute after Romelu Lukaku found an open Yannick Carrasco with a cross, but Wales keeper Wayne Hennessey got across to save.
Thomas Meunier's follow-up attempt was then cleared off the line by Neil Taylor but fell right to Eden Hazard, whose shot was defelected over the bar by a sliding Ben Davies.
Wales pushed back as Robson-Kanu headed over the bar in the ninth minute, and moments later Gareth Bale put a strong shot into the side netting.
Belgium did take the lead before long, though, as Nainggolan was granted acres of space outside the box and unleashed a 25-yard rocket that flew past a diving Hennessey.
The 13th-minute goal seemed to spark Wales into action, and Chris Coleman's men had much more possession after falling behind.
Their first chance to equalise came in the 25th minute when Taylor redirected Aaron Ramsey's pass from the byline, but Thibaut Courtois did well to get back across his goal to save.
But the Belgium keeper could do nothing five minutes later when Williams broke free following a corner and headed in to score his second international goal, and first since 2010.
Wales pushed for more as Bale ran at Jordan Lukaku before shooting across goal, but his attempt was too close to Courtois. culled
