Chris Coleman's side dominated Russia in Toulouse with a 3-0, while England could only manage a 0-0 draw against Slovakia.

I'll have a look tomorrow to see if I can stay out, but even if I go home tomorrow I can say that I have had the best time out here.

– Bryan Hughes, 67, Wrexham

As soon as Wales were confirmed as group winners, many were thinking about the next match at the Parc des Princes on Saturday.

We're going home tomorrow as it stands, but we might be getting a flight back out. It's just been a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity for us, really.

– Jamie Harris, 21, Wrexham

A number of fans said they were only planning on staying for the group stage, but the chance to see Wales progress might prove too strong.

We can't come this far and not seriously think about it. It's been an adventure, and why wouldn't we want it to carry on?

– Michael Pugh, 25, Blaenau Ffestiniog
