(SOUNDBITE) (English) WALES RUGBY FAN, STEVE CLISSOLD, SAYING: "It was very exciting, we had a little bit of luck and the French had a little bit of bad luck but in the end the dirty play cost them the game.

So roll on the semi-final and the final, that's what I say." 5.

(SOUNDBITE) (English) WALES RUGBY FAN, GARETH, SAYING: "Because we played absolutely terribly.

But France played really well, we struggled against 14 men, and that was the worst performance I've seen for Wales in about five or six years.

And I'm worried about the semi-final, whether it's Japan or South Africa.

But I'm happy because we're there." 8.

(SOUNDBITE) (French) FRANCE RUGBY FAN, NICOLAS SANTI-WEIL, SAYING: "I'm proud of the level of play France displayed, it was a great fight.

Unfortunately that red card was deserved so we can't complain about that, very good game, proud of our team, in particular their state of mind.

A bit disappointed by the red card and the two tries which weren't converted, a nice party in the spirit of rugby, Wales fought back so it was great." STORY: Relieved Welsh rugby fans were celebrating on Sunday (October 20) in Oita after their side's narrow victory over France in their World Cup quarter-final.

Ross Moriarty scored the winning try as Wales exploited their numerical superiority to rally for a 20-19 victory over France after French lock Sebastien Vahaamahina had been shown a red card.

In an echo of the semi-final meeting between the two nations in 2011 when France won after Sam Warburton was sent off, the Six Nations champions overhauled a nine-point deficit after Vahaamahina was dismissed for foul play in the 49th minute.

Replacement loose forward Moriarty crossed in the 74th minute to give Wales an eighth win in their last nine meetings with France and set up a semi-final against South Africa.

France had threatened to stage another sensational World Cup upset after a brilliant first-half display in which they scored three tries, including two in the first eight minutes, to lead 19-10 at the break.
