Euro 2016: People can't stop talking about Wales finishing ahead of England


Yes, that really DID happen, and Wales are celebrating one of the greatest nights in their football history after topping Group B at Euro 2016.

Players, politicians, celebrities and fans alike have been joining in the party, with just a little bit of gloating at England's expense. But who can blame them?

Even the Eiffel Tower was lit up to salute Wales, and the team will be seeing a bit more of it as they head to Paris for their next match.

There was plenty of celebration among the players after goals from Aaron Ramsey, Neil Taylor and Gareth Bale saw off Russia in Toulouse.

Meanwhile the England team seemed a bit quiet on Twitter... David Cameron stuck to the safety of congratulating both teams - but Wales First Minister Carwyn Jones and Rhondda MP Chris Bryant had a more one-sided view.

The travelling Welsh army partied in the fan zone and fans back home generally thought it was the best thing ever.

Some of the royalty of Welsh celebs joined in too.

Nia Jones, who plays for the Welsh women's football team, summed it up pretty neatly for Wales fans everywhere.

And - in case it's not imprinted on your brain already - here's a final treat for all Welsh fans with that table again. A job well done.
