Thousands on thousands of fans crowded one of the main stadiums
in Lisbon to watch Christiano break the heart of his Real Madrid team
mate- Gareth Bale. Horns blared out as fans exploded into an uproar as
the final whistle blew to seal Portugal's win against Wales in the
Euro semi final. Fans kept on chanting: "we are in the final! We are
in the final!"
Fans still clearly remember images of a 19 year old Ronaldo
shedding tears after Portugal lost two Greece in the final of the same
competition in 2004. And huge cheers went up each time his person
appeared on the giant screens. Ronaldo opened scoring in a game that
featured great display of creativity and eagerness as both teams
fought it out for a slot in the finals. Ronaldo scored his third goal
of the tournament in the 50th minute with a powerful header. One of
his trademarks**.
Three minutes later, Portugal doubled up a sure lead, when
Ronaldo's cross from a cleared ball got Nani who chipped in the ball
far out of the reach of the Welsh goalkeeper. With the goal on
wednesday night, Ronaldo equalled Michael Platini's record of nine
goals in the European Championships. He is also the first to score in
four European Championships. Ronaldo bagged a yellow card after a

In the first half of the game, Gareth Bale took the shine compared
to his club colleague on the opposition line(Ronaldo). But things
changed when Ronaldo leaped imperiously to head in five minutes after
the start of the second half. Wales who hit the semis after a 3-1 win
over Belgium were without the creativity of Aaron Ramsey and Ben
Davies. Both players out on suspension. Portugal had to do without
Pepe(injury) and William Carvalho(suspension). Portugal beat Poland on
penalties to qualify for the semi finals, and will now meet the winner
between Germany and France.

as the basked in the pride of their newly set historical mark. Its the
first time a Welsh football team is reaching the semi finals of a

they partied far into the night. Reaching the semi finals in Euro
2016 remains their best achievement since the got to the quaterfinals
of the World Cup in 1958.

sadness, joy, pride and achievement.
