Kick-off: 9.00pm local (8.00pm BST). Assistant referees: Jure Praprotnik (Slovenia) Robert Vukan (Slovenia) Fourth official: Nicola Rizzoli (Italy) Additional assistant referees: Matej Jug (Slovenia) Slavko Vinčić (Slovenia) Reserve assistant referee: Elenito Di Liberatore (Italy) Man of the Match: Hal Robson-Kanu (Wales) Undoubtedly, the biggest game for Wales since they reached the World Cup quarter-final in 1958. For Belgium, ranked second in the FIFA World rankings, Thomas Vermaelen was suspended and Jan Vertongen was ruled out due to tearing ligaments during training. Belgium dominated the early exchanges and then scored with a shot from distance by Radja Nainggolan. Wales responded well and only a Thibaut Courtois save could prevent a Neil Taylor equaliser on 26 minutes. Four minutes later, Wales equalised from a corner as Ashley Williams headed accurately into the back of the net. Ten minutes into the second half, Hal Robson-Kanu executed a marvelous turn in the Belgian box, opened his body up and scored an excellent goal. In the dying minutes, Wales benefited from two generous decisions from the officials who denied an apparent sending-off and clear penalty and then, with five minutes to go, Sam Vokes headed Wales three-one up, putting the game out of Belgium's reach and Wales through to the semi-final. Undoubtedly, the greatest night in the history of Welsh football.
