Not complaining one bit. It's easy to forget that the Welsh team have to play out of their skins every single game just to remain competitive - that's why what they have achieved is remarkable - but there is no wiggle room for even the slightest mistakes or drop in concentration as there were last night. Ultimately though, an incredible and enjoyable run!

I think Wales's total prize money from the tournament is in the region of €18m.  Given present exchange rates, they'd be wise to get that into sterling as soon as possible.

Let's hope a good chunk of that is channeled into player development in Wales.  There will never be a better time to encourage youngsters into the game.

They all just looked so tired last night...I believe there legs had gone. As others have said, they have had to play out of their skins every game.

I think that is easy to confuse that with a serious lack of pace.  Vokes and Church didn't really offer much, apart from effort.   

The pace on the wings, Taylor and Gunter, didn't have the same impact without Ramsey pulling the strings.

However, today is not the day to appear churlish.

Wales did the best with what they have got, but we are still two or three players short of being a really good side.

A superb journey. Obviously a tinge of disappointment with this surely the best chance we'll ever have to reach a major final, but plenty of memories nonetheless.

I'll be honest - I'm struggling to get excited about anything to do with Cardiff City right now.
