Euro 2016: Simon's Wales set for Last 8

1 July 2016

Simon Church and Wales are all set for their Euro 2016 quarter final against Belgium this evening.

Group B winners Wales take on the Red Devils in Lille tonight, looking to progress through to the Last 4 of a major tournament for the first-time ever.

Chris Coleman’s men secured their quarter-final tie with Belgium by defeating Northern Ireland in last week – Gareth McAuley’s own goal proving the decisive moment for the Welsh.

That 1-0 victory ensured a second-straight clean sheet for Wales, who also failed to concede a goal against Belgium when they met in Euro 2016 qualifying – after a 0-0 draw in the first match, Coleman’s side beat the Belgians 1-0 in Cardiff courtesy of a goal from Gareth Bale.

Wales will be hoping to continue that good record this evening but they face a Belgium outfit who have scored eight goals without reply in their last three matches.

Boss Coleman has received a boost ahead of the match, with the news that Ashley Williams should be fit to play despite a shoulder injury.

That means Wales may be unchanged tonight, with Dons striker Simon Church, as well former loanee Jonny Williams and Academy graduate George Williams, expected to be on the bench.

Kick-off at the Stade Pierre-Mauroy is set for 8pm. Coverage is on BBC One.
