Everton fans have taken to social networking site Twitter to give their reaction to Axel Witsel’s performance for Belgium against Wales on Friday evening.
Witsel featured in the Euro 2016 quarter-final tie at the Stade Pierre-Mauroy in Villeneuve-d’Ascq. The 27-year-old midfielder started the match and played for the entire 90 minutes.
Belgium were favourites to win the 2016 European Championship quarter-final tie, but it was the Dragons who emerged victorious.
Wales staged a stunning 3-1 comeback victory to book their place in the semi-finals of the prestigious competition.
Witsel took one shot, had a pass accuracy of 92%, won 80% of his headers, and made four interceptions, one clearance and two blocks.
Everton have been linked with a move for the Belgium international midfielder in the summer transfer window.

Witsel will look absolutely majestic in an Everton kit xoxox— Owen (@efc_owenshaw) July 1, 2016
So far can definitely see Axel Witsel fitting in at Goodison. Completely missing in first half which is some going with that hairstyle #EFC— Jake Harvey (@Jake__Harvey) July 1, 2016
@mattfinished Nasty tattoos too- but amazing goal. EFC supposed to be in for Witsel who hasn't featured— Meridian Zero (@MeridianZero) July 1, 2016
Hopefully belgium get knocked out. Get this Witsel wrapped up quicker. #EFC— Jonny Horne (@Jonnyhornez) July 1, 2016
30m for Axel Witsel is absolute robbery! Never played in a decent league & his stats are still poor, another player seriously overhyped #EFC— Callum James Diegan (@cal489) July 1, 2016
Witsel? NO THANKS— Syd (@syd_EFC) July 1, 2016
Much like current EFC players, if Witsel joins us I'll judge him on his performances in a Royal Blue shirt not his international colours.— Mark Pendleton (@sunscreemer) July 1, 2016
