Neil Taylor has warned Belgium that Wales can hurt them just like they did in Cardiff a year ago.

The two adversaries will meet for the fifth time since 2012 at the quarter-final stage of Euro 2016.

Wales have won two and drawn two of those four previous games - no mean feat against opponents ranked second in the world - and were victorious in their last meeting in June 2015 when Gareth Bale's first-half goal decided a Euro 2016 qualifier.

On paper they are an unbelievable team. They could put two teams out who are able to compete at these Euros, they have had a blessed generation of players coming through.

Teams like that can force you to be defensive. They move the ball so well, the type of players they have got, you have to respect them otherwise they can blow you away completely.

You have to show them respect they have earned from being good players and a good team, but we also know that we can hurt them. We have got our ways of hurting teams when we need to do but, first and foremost, we must try not to concede.

– Neil Taylor, Wales Defender
