Wales created history by entering their maiden semi-finals in an international competition after dismantling favorites Belgium 3-1 in the quarter-finals of the European Championships.
Wales’ manager Chris Coleman was ecstatic after his side booked their place in the semi-finals of Euro 2016 and deservingly so.
Twitter, though, wasn’t far behind in trolling neighbours England, over Wales’ feat.
Wales prove its possible to lose 48% to 52% and still stay in Europe.. 😂😂 pic.twitter.com/yVZEDoESk0

This via @andpscott – Wales have won as many major tournament knockout matches in the last week as England have in the last 20 years.

Wales players all bought up by the same Football school as England’s… Proving England’s problem is Cultural & mentality … #Fact

There were some who pointed fingers at Belgium’s inefficiency despite the obvious talent pool. Some used rather harsh words for some of the Belgian players as fans took to Twitter to vent their frustration.

Courtois has basically blamed the manager for Belgium’s defeat. May well be right, but not for him to say, and not now.

So much for these “golden generations” eh Belgium? Don’t worry, we know how you feel.

After that Hungary performance, I genuinely thought Belgium would kick on and go all the way to the final. Ever so disappointing.

Still others seem to be preparing themselves for the ultimate clash between Real Madrid superstars Ronaldo and Bale.

Wales vs Portugal is going to be Bale and Ronaldo playing a game of “anything you can do I can do better”

Bale vs Ronaldo set up by this too. Football. Bloody hell.
— Tim (@goldenears) July 1, 2016
They’re going to drink up all the beer and in a few days time Bale is going to drink Ronaldo’s tears.

Going to be fun watching Gareth Bale eliminate Ronaldo. Is there anything that would irritate Ronaldo more?
— Mark Travis (@Mark_Travis) July 1, 2016
It will be a sight to see both Ronaldo and Bale duke it out for their respective nations. They may be teammates at Real Madrid, but there’s no doubt they will be trying to show the other up as Belgium and Wales go head-to-head to book a berth in the finals of the European Championship.
