Tottenham Hotspur defender Toby Alderweireld and Arsenal midfielder Aaron Ramsey were in action at the Euro 2016 finals on Friday evening.

Ramsey and Alderweireld faced each other in the quarter-final tie between Wales and Belgium at the Stade Pierre-Mauroy in Villeneuve-d’Ascq.

While the Arsenal midfielder lined up for Wales, the Tottenham defender featured for Belgium.

Marc Wilmots’s side were favourites to win the 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.

Ramsey was one of the best players on the pitch, and Alderweireld did everything he could to prevent the Arsenal star from playing well.

During the match, the Tottenham defender did not show the former Cardiff City man any mercy, but he was gracious in defeat and congratulated Ramsey on the win (see photos below).

Against Belgium, Ramsey took two shots, had a pass accuracy of 86%, created six chances, put in seven crosses, attempted three dribbles and made one block.

Alderweireld took one shot, had a pass accuracy of 91%, created one chance, put in one cross, won 60% of his tackles, and made one interception and three clearances.
