The Prince of Wales has sent a good luck message to the Welsh football team ahead of their Euro 2016 showdown against Portugal later tonight.

Chris Coleman's team have reached the semi-finals at only their first major tournament since 1958, and will fight for a place in the Final at the Stade de Lyon at 8pm.

As you prepare for what will be – so far – the most important night in the history of Welsh football, I did just want to send you all my special thoughts and wishes.

Throughout the whole championship, you have set an inspiring example of teamwork and sportsmanship and I have no doubt that in this latest game you will continue to give your country even greater cause for pride.

Your historic achievements have already earned the support not only of Wales, but of the whole United Kingdom, and I hope you will know just how much we are all willing you on to further success.

Dymuniadau gorau ichi i gyd!

– Prince of Wales
