Wales manager Chris Coleman says not being afraid to fail was key to his country’s greatest night of football as they reached the Euro 2016 semi-finals.
Around 46,000 fans in Lille’s Stade Pierre Mauroy watched Wales’ stunning 3-1 last-eight win over Belgium, while 6,000 ecstatic Welsh supporters were at Cardiff’s Bute Park fan zone.
“Don’t be afraid to have dreams,” the Wales manager told BBC Sport.
“Amazing performance, amazing result,” tweeted Prime Minister David Cameron.
The result secured Wales’ first semi-final place at a major tournament, and came against the team second in Fifa’s official world rankings.
Wales were ranked 117th in the world in October 2011 with Coleman facing calls to quit his role from some Wales fans, but they have now reached the last four in their first major finals since the 1958 World Cup.
“Four years ago I was as far away from this as you could imagine,” said Coleman, 46. “I’m enjoying it, it’s great and we deserve it.
“If you work hard enough and you’re not afraid to dream then you’re not afraid to fail.
“I’m not afraid to fail. Everybody fails. I have had more failures than I’ve had success.”
