We can officially call Wales' Euro 2016 campaign a success after their wonderful 3-0 win over Russia secured their place in the last-16 of the competition, topping Group B in the process and finishing above England. 

The side has impressed with many Premier League clubs represented, and while much of the focus has been on the star man in Real Madrid's Gareth Bale, it is safe to say he has had a very good supporting cast. 

Players from Liverpool, Crystal Palace, Swansea City, Burnley and Arsenal have all had their role to play. Some of these clubs in particular could be huge beneficiaries when their players return to domestic action.

That positive energy from a memorable campaign when going back to the clubs can give them a lift. Crystal Palace's Joe Ledley with an improbable recovery from a broken leg to play a part in all three games at the tournament is one story that really should be talked about more. It is a great statement to make to his club, while teammate Wayne Hennessey played his part in Welsh football's most memorable night in the 21st century. 

Joe Allen staked his claim for a Liverpool future, but if he is not to the liking of Jurgen Klopp going into next season, then the Reds could benefit on the financial side, and Danny Ward's participation in their opening win against Slovakia will do him no harm in terms of big game experience.

Swansea City have Ashley Williams and Neil Taylor buoyant while Sam Vokes of Burnley has had his fair share of troubles but being part of successful international campaign is likely to keep him feeling good following promotion to the Premier League, and allow him to carry a positive mental attitude into the start of the domestic season.

A confident Aaron Ramsey in the final third could be worth another 10 points to Arsenal's campaign. That is just to name a few; other clubs could reap the rewards, too. 

Just because they have had a good tournament does not necessarily mean they will have a good season, but their clubs have an opportunity to build on some success the players have enjoyed at international level.
