All Five Eagles In Euro 2016 Semi-Finals

4 July 2016

All five of Crystal Palace's players have made it through to the semi-finals of Euro 2016 after Wales and France made it through to the final four.

On Friday night Wayne Hennessey and Joe Ledley both started as Wales shocked Belgium by cruising to a 3-1 win against one of the tournament favourites to set up a meeting with Portugal on Wednesday.

Ashley Williams, Hal Robson-Kanu and Sam Vokes overturned a one-goal deficit to put Chris Coleman's side into their first ever semi-final, however with Aaron Ramsey missing the meeting with Cristiano Ronaldo and co it could mean that Jonny Williams gets the nod to start his country's biggest game ever.

Meanwhile Yohan Cabaye and new signing Steve Mandanda also watched from the sidelines as France thrashed surprise package Iceland 5-2 to set up a mouthwatering game against Germany.

The hosts raced into a 4-0 lead at the interval before a spirited second half performance by the Icelanders, but now the Palace pair will be eyeing a spot in the final on Sunday should they overcome the Germans.

With all five now in the final four, it means that Bayern Munich are the only club who have more players still at the tournament than the Eagles.
