Daily Mail Make Ludicrous Assertion About Wales' Quarter-Final Win Against Belgium

Daily Mail Make Ludicrous Assertion About Wales' Quarter-Final Win Against Belgium
By PJ Browne Updated

Celebrate all you want Wales, but in the end, you could not have done it with England.

On Friday night, Wales and Belgium played out one of the best games of the tournament in Lille.

The Welsh, despite having taken four points off their opponents in qualifying, went into the game as underdogs. When they went a goal after less than a quarter of an hour, their prospects looked grim.

However, they hit back through goals from Ashley Williams, the Fellaini bewildering Hal Robson-Kanu and Sam Vokes.

This is where the England's glory is found. All three off Wales' scorers against Belgium were born in England.

It led to the following, triumph plundering headline from the Daily Mail.

Robson-Kanu was born in London, Williams in London and Vokes in Southampton.

Further glory for the English game can be found in its overall influence on the Wales squad. Nine of squad were born in England while 21 of the 23 play in English football.

When Wales take to the Lyon pitch against Portugal on Wednesday night, no doubt English fans will be revelling in this revelation.

If Kerry win the All-Ireland this year and Darran O'Sullivan scores the winning goal, the Daily Mail will surely claim the London-born player as reason for it really being England's victory.
