Our fabulous Devils will be in action for their UEFA EURO Quarter-final tomorrow at 3 pm. Atlantan supporters will meet at Fado Buckhead for an exciting game and make noise from their bar stools. No doubt the Welsh Dragon, with its star man Gareth Bale, is eager to take the win especially after witnessing the incredible victory from Iceland against England. This historical defeat should be a wake up call for our team and they should be vigilant if they want to knock the resilient Welsh out of the tournament!
