Manager of Wales football team Chris Coleman and Welsh winger Hal Robson-Kanu spoke to the press in Lille, Friday, following the team’s 3-1 victory against Belgium in the Euro 2016 quarter-final.

Robson-Kanu hailed the achievements of the Welsh national team, saying “We were underdogs to even qualify. But we knew the quality we had in our group. We have taken that into the tournament now, we have performed throughout and, as we said, to get to the quarters is a fantastic achievement.
