WALES READY TO MAKE WAVES
Neil Taylor has warned Belgium that Wales can hurt them just like they did in Cardiff a year ago.
The two adversaries will be meeting for the fifth time since the start of 2012, at the quarter-final stage of Euro 2016, with Wales losing just one of those games.
In their most recent meeting in June 2015, Gareth Bale scored the only goal of the game to decide a Euro 2016 qualifier.
“On paper they are an unbelievable team,” said Wales defender Taylor ahead of Friday’s last-eight clash in Lille [kick-off at 11pm UAE time]
“They could put two teams out who are able to compete at these Euros, they have had a blessed generation of players coming through. Teams like that can force you to be defensive.
“They move the ball so well, the type of players they have got, you have to respect them otherwise they can blow you away completely.
“You have to show them respect they have earned from being good players and a good team, but we also know that we can hurt them.
“We have got our ways of hurting teams but, first and foremost, we must try not to concede.”
Taylor also insists that the bond between Wales players and supporters gives them hope of causing an upset.
“We have really fed off each other which has been great,” he added.
“We feel that we are at one with our fans. I'd love to have been a fan at this tournament watching.”
