Watch: Fantastic Scenes As Belgium Fans Give Wales Fans Guard Of Honor In Train Station

Apart from when Russia and England fans clashed in the first week of the tournament, Euro 2016 has been a delightful celebration of football that has seen supporters from countries around Europe come together and enjoy themselves.

We've been seeing clips of fans mingling with supporters of other countries from day one, such as the great relationship between Irish and Swedish fans, but the good vibes have lasted into the knockout stages judging by a clip that surfaced after Friday night's cracking quarter-final between Wales and Belgium.

After Sam Vokes sealed the deal with a goal to make it 3-1 to Wales late on, we saw images of Wales fans beside themselves with joy alongside those of Belgian fans struggling to come to terms with what had just happened, but by the time the supporters made their way back into the centre of Lille, it's clear that many Belgian fans had accepted the result and were eager to wish their opponents well in the semis.


The train station in the centre of Lille (where many Irish fans will be familiar with the fountain, and the McDonalds that sells triple cheeseburgers) played host to a fantastic moment as Belgian fans clapped their Welsh counterparts into the station.


That's great to see.

While some "fans" would look for the nearest item of patio furniture to toss in the wake of a quarter-finals loss, these supporters summed up the spirit of the competition. Fair play to them.
