Aaron Ramsey has made it through to the quarter-finals of the Euros with Wales but they needed an own goal to seal the win over Northern Ireland.
It was Ramsey’s through ball to Bale that set the Real Madrid man for the cross that was diverted into the back of his own net by Gareth McAuley.
To be fair, there was little the Northern Irish man could do with Hal Robson-Kanu lurking on his heels and the ball from Ball was tremendous.
Ramsey was his usual tenacious self and even managed to get the ball into the back of the net in the first half only to see it ruled out for being offside.
The Arsenal man covered over 10km during the game, with only two players outworking him. He also made the second highest number of passes:
