Wales forward Hal Robson-Kanu (L) celebrates after scoring a goal with Gareth Bale (R) during the Euro 2016 quarter-final against Belgium, on July 1, 2016Hal Robson-Kanu scored a sensational goal as Wales came from behind to stun Belgium 3-1 in Friday's Euro 2016 quarter-final in Lille and reach their first major tournament semi-final. Radja Nainggolan gave Belgium a 13th-minute lead, but Ashley Williams equalised before a dazzling strike from Robson-Kanu, whose contract with English second-tier club Reading expired on Thursday, and a late header by substitute Sam Vokes earned Wales a historic victory. Wales talisman Gareth Bale will now go head-to-head with his Real Madrid team-mate Cristiano Ronaldo when the tournament's last British representatives face Portugal in Lyon on Wednesday.
