WATCH: Wales celebrate quarter-final place in the best way

What a story Wales’ Euro 2016 run is! The Welsh Dragons have very quickly ended any talk that their successful appearance in France is only because of the new format implemented for Euro 2016.

Obviously, with Gareth Bale as the talisman, Wales have a match winner (which is half the battle), but Chris Coleman has put together a well-assembled team, got Aaron Ramsey and Joe Allen ticking in the middle of the park and Neil Taylor is (somehow) now a marauding, goalscoring left-back.

Off the pitch, in amongst the scenes that are a throwback to the hooliganism of the 70s and 80s, the Welsh fans have supported their team passionately and in the right spirits; they’ve painted France red from Nice to Lens – they’ve been a refreshing and uplifting sight.

And it appears the chanting, the songs, the dancing and the high morale has rubbed off on Wales’ Joe Ledley, with the Crystal Palace man resembling the drunken mate at 3am in a nightclub on a Saturday – the only difference being, that Ledley was intoxicated with quarter-final fever, and not Jagermeister.

Who is going to be the top scorer at Euro 2016?

Alvaro Morata

Antoine Griezmann

Gareth Bale

Dimitri Payet
