History awaits the victors as Wales talisman Gareth Bale and rejuvenated Belgium star Eden Hazard lead their respective golden generations into battle in Friday's Euro 2016 quarterfinal in Lille Friday.Belgium, second in the FIFA ranking, are desperate to make good on their squad's vast potential and reach a first major semifinal since the 1986 World Cup.Wales are riding high in their first major tournament in 58 years and having outlasted British rivals England and Northern Ireland, their confidence is at an all-time high.As Belgium are likely to adopt a higher line than Northern Ireland, Hal Robson-Kanu could return up front for Wales in place of the less mobile Sam Vokes.With average squad ages of 26.9 and 26 respectively, Wales and Belgium convene at a time when both groups of players are arriving at maturity.
