Wales are through to the semi-finals of the European Championships after securing an incredible 3-1 win over top-ranked side Belgium in Lille last night.

The stars of the Welsh team were in great form – with Gareth Bale, Aaron Ramsey, Ashley Williams and Joe Allen all pivotal – but it was the former Reading man Hal Robson-Kanu who stole the show.

The forward, who is a free agent after failing to agree a Royals extension, was fantastic throughout the match and his goal gave Wales a 2-1 lead in some style.

He perfected a magnificent Cruyff turn in the box before slotting beyond Thibaut Courtois, before Sam Vokes settled things with the Welsh third.

It remains to be seen where Robson-Kanu does end up this summer – but he has the small issue of a Euro 2016 semi-final v Portugal to overcome first.
