Britain produced a stunning 3-1 victory over Belgium last night to secure themselves a place in the semi-finals, where they will meet Portugal.

Showing true British grit and resolve against their heavily fancied opponents, Britain came from behind to win thanks to goals from captain Ashley Williams, plus Hal Robson-Kanu and Sam Vokes.

Britain fan Simon Williams told us, “This is a great night for Britain, and two fingers up to those who said a team from this island would never make the semis.”

“Us fans always knew that Britain could beat anyone when they play like that, and I look forward to seeing the Union Jack flying proudly all around the stadium in France on Wednesday night.

“I tell you now, absolutely no-one will be excited at the prospect os playing this Britain side.”

European football correspondent, Miguel Garcia told us, “Britain winning this match is a huge shock.

“You have to remember that Britain doesn’t really have any superstar footballers – well, apart from that one – but they have such good team spirit, and work so well together.

“It probably comes from all being raised together on that tiny island.”
