Wales are through to the semi-finals of Euro 2016 after a pulsating victory over Belgium, and not surprisingly the reaction on social media saw the Dragons showered with praise.
Radja Nainggolan put Belgium ahead on Friday night, only for Ashley Williams, Hal Robson-Kanu and Sam Vokes to fire back as Chris Coleman’s side booked their spot in their first major last-four berth.
While England may have seen their run at the tournament end in disappointing fashion, many of the country’s pundits and former players were among those to congratulate Wales.
