The nation broke into harmonious cheer when the result came in as 3-1 against Belgium. This is the furthest any UK team has ever made it in the UEFA European Championship, so support is found from all over the United Kingdom. While we won the match it was not without its casualties. Star play maker Aaron Ramsey was taken out of the next match by being given two yellow cards. As an important player, this is something of a blow to the strength of the Welsh team. But all is not lost; we still have superstar striker and Welsh hero Gareth Bale and his signature Man-Bun to champion the game, along with the recent matches Hal Robson-Kanu and Team Captain Ashley Williams.
Wales is drawing together to rally support to the next round against Portugal, with fan zones being established across the nation to help galvanise morale towards the heroic footballers. The upcoming match being billed as Ronaldo vs Bale (both players used to playing side-by-side as Real Madrid comrades) is going to be a challenge for the Dragons, but the best team Wales’ has ever boasted with star footballers revved up and ready to give the Portuguese all they have, we certainly have a fighting chance of defeating them.
Wales’ track record this season has been brilliant, so it’s only right for fans to be optimistic; it has been a long time since Wales’ football team has been such a monument of universal pride. Expect every pub in Wales to be packed out, eagerly awaiting the kick-off of this momentous occasion, every fan on the edge of their seat to see if we can make history as being the first British team to take it to the finals of the European Championship.
Due to overwhelming demand, Conwy Council is set to host a football ‘fan-zone’ in Eirias Park. You can expect football lads and girls, painted up and chanting for victory for the Welsh team all the way in France. The park is open from 6pm, and hopeful attendants are advised to come early in order to avoid disappointment as there is limited capacity.
There are set to be other fanzones across North Wales, such as Wrexham, at the Mona Showground on Anglesey, and the Events Arena Rhyl
