🇵🇹Portugal 2⃣ - 0⃣ Wales
⚽Goals: Cristiano Ronaldo 50', Nani 53'

Cristiano Ronaldo⚡ has shown once again why he is one of the best👌 in the world. A goal⚽ and an assist from CR7⚡ has taken Portugal to the finals✌ of Euro 2016.
Though Wales were gifted😯 early chances in the 2⃣nd half, it was Portugal who took the lead⚽ in the 50' with a stunning header👏 from Ronaldo. The Real Madrid👑 star rose high to head in Guerreiro's cross. Ronaldo's goal meant that he has now equalled👍 Michel Platini's⭐ Euro record of 10 goals⚽. 3⃣ minutes🕐 later, Portugal doubled✌ the lead when CR7 turned provider. Nani😎 chased down Ronaldo's low shot to slide it in past the Welsh goalkeeper👋 Hennessey. 2⃣ minutes after the hour mark, Ronaldo almost😳 doubled his tally through a stunning😍 free-kick but his shot whistled just above the bar. Portugal came close to goal⚽ again but Joao Mario wasted😔 a rebound as he shot wide of the post. In the 76', Bale struck a decent 25 yard half volley✨ but it was again straight at the goalkeeper. During the final minutes, clear chances👌 were created at both ends. In the injury time, Portugal were awarded another free-kick but Ronaldo's shot was blocked👊 by the wall which did not have any bearing on the final result. Portugal have entered the Euro final for the first time since 2004, when they were thwarted by Greece😯.
