Watch: Radja Nainggolan scores a stunner to give Belgium the lead

Belgium has to be considered favorites to advance to the semi-finals, and when Radja Nainggolan is scoring these kind of goals it’s easy to see why. Belgium has had the majority of the chances early in their Quarterfinal meeting with Wales. However, it took a spectacular attempt to open the scoring.

Nainggolan was given plenty of space to show off his right foot and he took full advantage. He stepped into a shot that went into the top corner and was described as a ‘tracer bullet’ by Ian Darke. Wayne Hennessey tried to reach for the save but his effort was in vain, it was a perfect strike.
