Wales are through to a historic Euro 2016 quarter final after edging past Northern Ireland thanks to a Gareth McAuley own goal in Paris.
It was a tight game for 70 minutes with chances few and far between until McAuley helplessly turned the ball into his own net to give Wales the lead.
They will now go on to face the winners of the Round of 16 tie between Belgium and Hungary in Lille on Friday.
It was a cagey start by both teams in front of a great atmosphere at the Parc des Princes and Northern Ireland looked to grab hold of the game from early on as Stuart Dallas drew a fine save from Wayne Hennessey at his near post.
Wales struggled to create chances with Gareth Bale shackled by the Irish defence but they did get the ball in the net on 19 minutes when Sam Vokes knocked the ball down forAaron Ramsey, but the Arsenal man was correctly flagged offside.
Northern Ireland came close again as the half wore on with Jamie Ward’s long shot forcing Hennessey to palm the ball over his bar.
Michael O’Neill would have gone the happier manager at half time with Wales looking particularly nervous in front of what Bale labelled their ‘Wall of Red’.
It was more of the same after the break with Northern Ireland going for the Welsh but Vokes had a great chance when he headed wide from a Ramsey cross of real high quality.
Bale then had a chance as he took his demonic stance over a free kick 25 yards out, but it was beaten away well by Michael McGovern.
Finally in the 74th minute Wales broke the deadlock then Ramsey picked out Bale unmarked on the left before the Real Madridman fired in a low cross that was turned into his own net by McAuley.
Hal Robson-Kanu was waiting behind McAuley to tuck in Bale’s wicked cross and there was nothing the West Brom defender could do but turn it past McGovern.
And Wales held out for the win despite more nervy defending to continue their French fairytale into the quarter-finals.
