The opening minutes🕐 of the game did not produce😒 any clear cut chances for both the teams. However, Portugal were able to test😯 the Welsh defence on several occasions🤔. Coleman's side were unable to hold onto the ball😞 for longer and Bale⚡ was kept out of the game during the initial minutes. In the 22', a solo😱 counter💨 attack from Bale almost gave Wales the opening goal⚽ but his shot was straight at the Portugal goalkeeper👋 Rui Patricio. Minutes later, Andy King failed😔 to head in a cross from Robson-Kanu. Wales were slowly building momentum and looked dangerous👊 on the break. The final minutes of the first half saw Portugal dominate and create🙌 chances but an end result was clearly😟 lacking. With just 1⃣ minute remaining before the half-time, Ronaldo⚡ missed a clear header😞. The first half has been unimpressive😕 and Portugal have continued their dull style of play which has been their trademark😏 all through the tournament🏆.
