PARIS (AP) - Wales fans will get the chance to welcome home the European Championship semifinalist Friday with an open-top bus parade through the streets of Cardiff and a performance by Welsh band Manic Street Preachers.

A 2-0 defeat by Portugal in Lyon on Wednesday brought Wales’ presence at the championship to an end.

As well as the bus parade, The Football Association of Wales is opening Cardiff City Stadium on Friday. There will be a presentation to the players and coaching staff as well as music.

FAW chief executive Jonathan Ford said: “We feel this event is a great way of everyone celebrating what has been a historic period for Welsh football.
