Reading full-back full of prideReading’s Chris Gunter was filled with pride following Wales’ 1-0 win over Belgium in Cardiff on Friday evening.
The full-back was deployed as a right-sided centre-half, as part of a defensive five, by Chris Coleman and performed exceptionally as the Welsh toppled their Belgian counterparts.
The victory over the side listed second in the FIFA World Rankings gives the Welsh a three-point lead at the top of European qualifying Group B and provides them with an almighty chance of reaching their first major tournament since 1958.
“It was an unbelievable night for Welsh football – the best I’ve had playing for Wales,” said Cardiff-raised Gunter following the win.
“The last 35 minutes seemed to go in slow motion but the feeling at the end was worth every bit of pain and emotion.
“I thought the fans were unbelievable. It was the best atmosphere I’ve played in, so the fans deserve a big pat on the back as well.”
