This was a celebratory win for Wales for winning their 9th straight game against Wales but most importantly being able to move into the last eight. It might not be the win they were expecting as the goal was scored by the opponent, Northern Ireland defender Gareth McAuley.

Wales manager Coleman has this to say —

“We wanted to come to the tournament and do our nation proud. You never know in football how far you can go. You can have a bit of bad luck, a bit of good luck. Today, we had a bit of good luck and Northern Ireland had a bit of bad luck.

But I think since we’ve been in the tournament we’ve been worthy of our position and worthy of our status in the tournament. And today we had to win in a different way. It wasn’t pretty, we had to fight really hard.

Credit to Northern Ireland – they never let us play. They never allowed us to get into our stride, but our players kept their focus, they kept their discipline, and it was always going to be a little bit of luck, our way or their way, on a game today where there was so much on it, that was going to win it. And thankfully that came our way.”

Northern Ireland is praised for their performance in Eufa Euro 2016 —
