KATHMANDU — Wales defeated Belgium 3-1 to reach the Euro 2016 semi-finals with a victory that included a sensational strike by Hal Robson-Kanu and a goal for captain Ashley Williams on Friday.
Radja Nainggolan put Belgium ahead with a thunderous 25-yard strike but Wales captain Ashley Williams headed in from a corner to equalise in a breathless first half littered with chances at both ends.
After that the pace the Belgians set in the opening stages subsided and Wales equalised in the 31st minute when Williams headed home a corner delivered by the excellent Aaron Ramsey.
Robson-Kanu, who got the Welsh winner against Slovakia in the group stage, made it in 2-1 in the 55th with a brilliant turn and shot inside the area from another Ramsey assist.
Wales, who reached the quarter-finals of the 1958 World Cup, will face Portugal on Wednesday.Follow @gorkhapost
