Simon Davies is well placed to give South Korea advice on how to topple Germany on Tuesday's World Cup semi-final - he was in the last international side to do so.
Our midfield prodigy was in the Welsh team that deservedly beat Rudi Voller's men 1-0 at the Millennium Stadium in a friendly before the start of the tournament.
Since then they've beaten Austria in a friendly before going to the World Cup, thrashed Saudi Arabia in their first group match, drawn against Ireland, beat Cameroon to top the group and scraped past Paraguay and USA to leave South Korea between them and the final.
"They didn't have a full-strength side out that night, we got at them and deserved to win," Simon recalled.
"We matched them physically and hit them with pace on the counter attack. We won 1-0 and had a couple more chances, I had a decent chance to make it 2-0.
"I didn't think they would go on to the semi-finals after that game, but you have to take your hat off to them. They always do well when it matters.
"I suppose if they go on and win it it will reflect well on us!"
