Stade Pierre-Mauroy Attendance: Attendance 45, On the greatest night in their football history, Wales beat Belgium to reach the semi-finals of Euro The result means Wales will play in the first major semi-final in their history against Portugal in Lyon on Wednesday after knocking out the number two side in FIFA's world rankings.
Belgium dominated the opening stages of this quarter-final and a seventh-minute scramble somehow failed to produce the first goal as Yannick Ferreira Carrasco fired straight at Wayne Hennessey before Neil Taylor blocked Thomas Meunier's follow-up effort and Ashley Williams and Ben Davies combined to stop Eden Hazard scoring.
And from Kevin De Bruyne's subsequent corner, Romelu Lukaku was too slow to react and poke a simple chance into the net from inside the six-yard box.
But the deadlock was broken on 13 minutes as Nainggolan received the ball from Eden Hazard in a pocket of space 25 yards from goal and released a sweet, swerving drive which Hennessey's fingertips could not stop.
Wales should have equalised on 26 minutes when Aaron Ramsey cut the ball back to Taylor on the edge of the six-yard box but he was denied by the desperate dive of Thibaut Courtois when he looked certain to score.
However the leveller arrived five minutes later when Ashley Williams inexplicably found himself unmarked to head home Ramsey's corner with De Bruyne failing to clear on the line.
Gareth Bale's near-post run had perhaps distracted the Belgian markers - and moments later Wales' star man was on the attack again, but failed to beat Courtois after breaking from the half-way line.
It becomes cooler at higher altitudes; annual temperatures decrease on average approximately 0. The ocean current, bringing warmer water to northerly latitudes, has a similar effect on most of north-west Europe.
As well as its influence on Wales' coastal areas, air warmed by the Gulf Stream blows further inland with the prevailing winds. At low elevations, summers tend to be warm and sunny.
Winters tend to be fairly wet, but rainfall is rarely excessive and the temperature usually stays above freezing. The south-western coast is the sunniest part of Wales, averaging over hours of sunshine annually, with Tenby , Pembrokeshire, its sunniest town.
The dullest time of year is between November and January. The least sunny areas are the mountains, some parts of which average less than hours of sunshine annually.
Coastal areas are the windiest, gales occur most often during winter, on average between 15 and 30 days each year, depending on location.

Pembrokeshire and Ceredigion, in particular, are recognised as an area of international importance for bottlenose dolphins , and New Quay has the only summer residence of bottlenose dolphins in the whole of the UK.
River fish of note include char , eel , salmon , shad , sparling and Arctic char , whilst the gwyniad is unique to Wales, found only in Bala Lake.

In the late s and early s, Wales was successful in attracting an above average share of foreign direct investment in the UK. Poor-quality soil in much of Wales is unsuitable for crop-growing so livestock farming has traditionally been the focus of farming.

Although more notable for his Italian scenes, he painted several Welsh scenes on visits from London. By the late 18th century, the popularity of landscape art grew and clients were found in the larger Welsh towns, allowing more Welsh artists to stay in their homeland.
Artists from outside Wales were also drawn to paint Welsh scenery, at first because of the Celtic Revival.
