The Blizzard: Wales 3-1 Belgium, 2016

It's time for a truly joyous episode of Greatest Games, in association with The Blizzard. Welsh comedian Elis James joins us to discuss perhaps the finest moment in Welsh football history.


Wales have endured a notoriously difficult relationship with international qualifying campaigns; their fate was still up in the air with one game to go in eleven different campaigns. But, after some assured performances this time around saw them finish second behind Belgium, they advanced to Euro 2016 full of optimism. Chris Coleman's men powered through their group, then laboured past Northern Ireland – before the big one.


You've seen the Hal Robson-Kanu goal. Now relive the moment through Elis' eyes as he watched on delirious in the Stade Pierre Mauroy alongside the jubilant travelling fans – some who made it there via minibus from Aberystwyth.
