Wales fans have a lot of reasons to be cheerful at the Euros right now.
They’re about to take on Portugal in the semi final, after a dream tournament that has included finishing top of Group B ahead of England, and knocking out Belgium in the quarter finals.
Much of the Welsh success is down to team spirit, which was initially instilled in the squad by Gary Speed, before he passed away in 2011.
Speed’s father Roger is in France to watch the game with Wales fans, and they’ve given him a hero’s welcome as he joins the Dragons fans.

Roger will be watching on as Wales take on Cristiano Ronaldo’s Portugal tonight, and Gary will be watching on from above as his country attempts to lift the European Championship trophy at the first time of asking, having never qualified before.
