A set of Belgian fans made their way to Wales in South Yorkshire by mistake ahead of their country’s football clash in Cardiff.

The group of supporters rang the Studio Brussel radio station this morning (Friday) complaining they had found their way to the wrong Wales.

Belgian fans face a three and a half hour trip to the 'right' Wales.

They later found out that Wales near Rotherham is three and a half hours away from the Welsh capital and faced an extra drive to get there.

Their original destination was Cardiff City Stadium and they hoped they would reach it by putting in ‘Wales’ in the sat nav.

Unfortunately they ended up 200 miles away according to HLN.be.

Wales (the village) has a population of 6,455 compared to Wales (the nation) with roughly 3.1M.
